KS5 CURRICULUM

General RE

All Sixth Form students complete a programme of General RE. This consists of one lesson per fortnight. During the two-year course you will be involved in 3 areas of participation:

  • Academic: Members of the RE department will share with you their areas of interest and expertise. 100% attendance is expected.
  • Reflection: Short essays (approximately 2 sides of A4) will contain your thoughts, views and opinions on topics studied.
  • Faith in Action: Community service either within or outside of school; it can be a new commitment or an existing one.

To complete the course, you will need to write at least one essay per academic year. Students who complete the ‘Faith in Action’ will be presented with a separate reward reflecting their contribution.

A-Level Religious Studies

Students complete Edexcel GCE A-Level Religious Studies: Philosophy and Ethics (Foundations: Area A and Area B; Investigations: Area B; Developments: Area A and Area B; Implications: Area A). There are two examinations at the end of Y12 (AS) and two at the end of Y13 (A2).
