Religious Studies - A Level


Religious Studies is a fascinating subject that covers some of humanity’s oldest questions. Within this A level we explore issues concerning morality and philosophy, as well as the development of religious beliefs through history, and the impact of religious issues on contemporary society. We begin our studies by examining differing ethical approaches to modern issues such as embryo research, capital punishment and the use of animals in scientific research .


Grade 5 in GCSE Religious Studies or another Humanities subject


Students who wish to take the subject further can apply for degree courses in Theology, Philosophy or Religious Studies. Many students go on to study subjects like Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology, Politics, English Literature or PPE at university. Students of Religious Studies have continued on to successful careers in many fields, including law, education, business, social work, medicine, administration and the media.
