There are six sets in Year 10 Religious Studies, which are based on the maths groups. Although this may sound odd, it makes the groups far more mixed and enables a variety of opinions to be heard in the classroom.
All students follow the Edexcel Religion and Life (Christianity) short course GCSE (5RS02) across year 10 and 11. This course looks at a variety of life issues, such as racism, marriage, euthanasia, the role of women and investigates them from a Christian and a non religious point of view.
We hope that our students develop reasoned opinions and empathy for others from following this course.
A small number of students have chosen to take a further course as an after school activity to gain the extra qualification. These students will study Religion and Society (5RS08). They will look at issues such as capital punishment, environmental issues, voting systems, bullying and investigate them from a Christian , a Muslim and a non religious point of view.
All students are encouraged to read widely, watch the news, keep up to date with current affairs as this will be useful for developing opinions.
Discussion tasks will be given.
Individual research/project work will be given as appropriate.
If you have any queries regarding Key Stage 4 Religious Studies, please contact Miss Prickett, Mrs Phippen or Mrs Watson through the school office.
