REligion and World Views

Students will study the RS curriculum in Year 7, 8 and 9. They will receive one lesson per week. We are really proud of the curriculum as we have aimed to make it exciting, ambitious, and inclusive of all views, religious and non-religious worldviews.

Students are encouraged to develop their own attitudes towards world religions and synoptic themes related to religion and worldviews. Students benefit from appreciating the points of similarity and difference that exist between the world religions, and how these world religions form the basis for most world cultures. Students also benefit from developing critical thinking skills, writing skills, and research skills.

Please look at our programme of study for next year.

Phase 3

In year 9 Religious Studies has become a GCSE option. To prepare students for the GCSE. In year 9 they will currently study the six major world religions, beliefs, and practices so that they have a secure foundation ready to begin the GCSE later in the year. Students will also undertake a project within year 9 where they explore and undertake research on arguments for the existence of God. This will allow them to apply the wide range of disciplines within the subject and develop their understanding of the subject ready for future learning.
