In Years 7-9, students have one hour a week. The students study the theme of community in year 7 from the perspective of different world religions. In year 8 students explore sacred texts and great leaders. In year 9 students begin to learn about philosophical questions such as ‘where did the universe come from?’ and ‘is death the end?’. Most schools only offer Religious Studies as an option subject but we feel that the subject is such a strength that all students study RS to GCSE level with fantastic results across all ability ranges. The students study AQA Morality and Life Issues with a wide spread of topics encompassed with these.
