A Level Religious Studies

Your Unique Experience

You will explore a variety of subjects in a highly challenging but supportive setting. You will have specialist support with individual projects and peer support during group work sessions. There will be an opportunity for 1:1 support form grade improvement sessions on this course.

Course Content

The subject combines very well with History, Sociology, Psychology and the Sciences. Many former students have decided to progress to University to study Religious Studies, Theology, History of Ideas or Philosophy

More than just a Course

Is there life after death? Does God exist? Why do bad things happen to good people? Why be good? If you are interested in the big questions in life, then Religious Studies is for you. We examine key issues and theories in ethics and the philosophy of religion, as well as a study of Christian theology. If you have an enquiring mind and an interest in the views of others as well as in developing your own well-informed views on some of the biggest questions in life, then you are an ideal Religious Studies student. Students come to Religious Studies from all faith backgrounds and none: no religious faith is assumed, and the only prerequisites are an open mind and a willingness to consider profound ideas
