A Level

Entry requirements:    

Five GCSEs including Maths & English Language: a minimum of three GCSEs at Grade 4 and two GCSEs at Grade 5.

What is it?    

Develop an understanding of how religion fits into the wider world and how philosophy fits into history. You can challenge your own personal beliefs in a safe and philosophical manner, and enjoy discussing matters with your teachers and classmates.

Why choose this subject at BSFC?    

RS lessons at the College encourage informed debate and philosphical discussion in class, which might well be very different to high school lessons as they take on a more university seminar-like feel where students are included in the process.

What will I study?    

Across the two years, you will focus on Christianity as a major world religion and important elements of beliefs. You will look at ethical theories such as natural moral law and also the philosophy of religion.

How will I be assessed?    

Exams at the end of Year 2.

How will this subject prepare me for the world of work?    

The ability to understand and interact with people and organisations from a vareity of religious and cultural traditions is highly valued, as is the skill to argue a case on the basis of evidence, which is central to progress in many careers.
