Philosophy & Ethics

This course meets the National Curriculum requirements for the teaching and learning of religious education.

A variety of topics are covered within the course, for example: the nature of belief, death and the afterlife, religion and science, religion and medical ethics, religion, peace and justice and religion and human relationships.

The course is taught with an emphasis on enhancing students' critical thinking and reasoning skills, as well as their knowledge of a variety of cultural perspectives and social, moral and spiritual development. We also emphasise the highly valuable transferable skills that students can develop through studying RE and Philosophy and Ethics which can promote success across a range of subjects.

Students are expected to keep up to date with current events in the areas being studied and include topical issues in their written work and examinations.

We have good links with the Beaconsfield family of churches and local Christian youth groups.
