Religious Studies

Religious studies are a central part of the core curriculum for all students Y7 – Y11. Our aim is to encourage students to become caring, thoughtful, useful members of society with values, an ability to learn independently, and an interest and understanding of the world they live in. We aim is to affirm, encourage, and challenge students on their own spiritual journey.

At KS3 we cover all the six major religions.

At KS4 all students study the full AQA GCSE. There is no coursework.

Two 1¾ hour exam at the end of year 11.

Below is an overview of the RS curriculum.
