Key Stage 4
We offer a full Religious Studies GCSE. The course we deliver is Edexcel Specification B. We study Religion and Ethics through an in depth study of Christianity. Through this we look at key religious beliefs and practices in Christianity, as well as a range of issues including; marriage, divorce, sexual relationships, family planning, abortion, euthanasia and the natural world. Our second unit of study is Religion, Peace and Conflict through an in depth study of Islam. Through this we look at key beliefs and practices in Islam as well as a range of issues including; the aims of punishment, causes of crime, justice, the death penalty, attitudes to conflict, peacemaking, Holy War and terrorism.
Here is a recommended wider reading list for Christianity and for Islam for KS4 pupils.
