Religious Studies

In This Section

Religious Studies is an essential part of life at King’s.

It doesn’t just happen in the classroom but in every aspect of school life, in terms of the values and respect shown to each other and in the way our pupils are encouraged to respond to the issues and challenges of our day.

Through the generic Religious Studies programme across the 3rd and 4th Forms, pupils get an opportunity to investigate some of the key religions of the world and also to grapple with many of the ethical issues that have shaped and divided our world; the ethics of war, radicalisation, human rights, terrorism, trafficking, abortion and environmental stewardship, to name a few of the topics covered.

GCSE Curriculum

At King's we study AQA GCSE Religious Studies A.

Paper 1 - Covers in-depth study of two religions: Buddhism and Christianity, looking at the beliefs and practices of each.

Paper 2 -  Covers four ethical themes;  those of Religion and Life, Crime and Punishment, Peace and Conflict, Human Rights and Social Justice.

GCSE Specification

Former pupils say:

"RS is the subject that challenged me most and was an education for life,"

"If I had not done RS GCSE then I would not be informed and able to evaluate my beliefs on issues that one day we will all have to decide on."
