Philosophy, Theology and Ethics

The Philosophy, Theology and Ethics Department actively promotes the values of truth, justice and respect for all.  In Key Stage 3 we aim to achieve this through a thematic approach; looking at philosophical and ethical issues. This includes the views of the major world religions as well as non-theistic viewpoints.  In Years 10 to 11 students can choose an option to follow GCSE OCR Religious Studies.  Students who do not opt for GCSE Religious Studies have a fortnightly lesson, where they discuss and debate a range of philosophical and ethical issues.  This is not examined.
