KS4 Philosophy, Religion & Ethics

Welcome to PRE Vimeo
What do you study?

The course covers a wide range of topics from Philosophy, Religion and Ethics.

Students will consider their own views on these issues and will consider a range of different religious and non-religious viewpoints.

Why study Philosophy, Religion and Ethics?

The Philosophy, Religion and Ethics course builds on the course studied in Years 7 to 9.  Philosophy and Ethics addresses issues of faith and fulfils our legal obligation to teach Religious Education and the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. In addition to this it provides young adults with a forum to face some deep and difficult questions about our lives and behaviour and the opportunity to develop critical thinking and analytical skills which will enhance their learning experience across the curriculum and allow them to communicate their ideas in a more sophisticated way.

It will enable students to:

  • Develop their interest in, and enthusiasm for, a study of religion and its relation to the wider world;
  • Develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of religion by exploring the significance, impact of beliefs, teachings, sources, practices, ways of life and forms of expressing meaning;
  • Express their personal responses and informed insights on fundamental questions about identity, belonging, meaning, purpose, truth, values and commitment.
How is the course assessed?
