Religious Studies

Statutory Religious Studies Key Stage 4

All students will learn about aspects of religion and religious practices as part of their tutorial, assembly and enrichment time programme. This will include opportunities to question and debate specific spiritual, social, moral and cultural issues and for students to reflect on their personal knowledge and understanding of the subject and the wider issues it relates to.

GCSE Religious Studies

Students will learn about aspects of religion and religious practices. This will include opportunities to question and debate specific social and moral issues and for students to reflect on their personal knowledge and understanding of the subject and the wider issues it relates to.

What will you be learning?
The new GCSE course of study will give students the opportunity to explore:

  • Christian beliefs
  • living the Christian life
  • marriage and the family
  • matters of life and death
  • Islamic beliefs
  • living the Muslim life
  • peace and conflict
  • crime and punishment

Students will have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of Christianity and Islam. They will examine a variety of moral and social issues and consider how different people approach and react to them. They will use DVDs, discussion, and debates and will also look at items currently in the news. There is a lot of thinking and talking involved and most students appreciate that the issues raised don’t have easy answers.

What is the method of assessment?
There is no coursework but there are two external exams at the end of Year 11. There is one tier of entry and all grades are available.

What career options do you have?
In many areas of work, employers look for someone with an enquiring mind, understanding and appreciation of other people’s points of view, and an ability to come to clear, informed decisions: these are all skills which are developed in Religious Studies.

An Religious Studies qualification specifically meets needs in broadcasting, journalism, publishing, teaching, medicine, and social work. The understanding gained in Religious Studies can also enhance work undertaken in a huge variety of fields, such as the building industry, social work, the civil service, veterinary practice and the hospitality industry.
