Philosophy, Theology & Ethics

Philosophy, Theology and Ethics is a subject that by its nature requires candidates to consider individual, moral, ethical, social, cultural and contemporary issues.

All modules taught provide opportunities to:

  • Develop your interest in a rigorous study of religion and belief and relate it to the wider world.
  • Develop knowledge and understanding appropriate to a specialist study of religion.
  • Develop an understanding and appreciation of religious thought and its contribution to individuals, communities and societies.
  • Adopt an enquiring, critical and reflective approach to the study of religion.
  • Reflect on and develop your own values, opinions and attitudes in the light of your study.

Exam Board: EDUQAS

Entry requirements

Future opportunities

This is a traditional essay based subject which is valued by universities because it develops skills such as:

  • The ability to understand logical arguments
  • To express and defend your opinions and to apply theories to a range of situations

These skills are helpful in any degree course at university and are especially relevant to Humanities subjects and Law.

At Key Stage 5 we organise our own bespoke Masterclass conference with Dr Greg Barker. Students find this incredibly useful as well as thought provoking. Hosting Dr Barker at our school enables students to ask a greater number of questions, and allows us to tailor the session to their needs. We will also be running trips to St Pauls Cathedral, London for Yr 12 and 13. This year we are excited to also be taking our students to see the new musical The Prince of Egypt at the Dominion Theatre, London and we are also hoping to run a trip to Rome in the near future.
