RE Short Course at Prince William School

Course content

Do you think marriage is out-dated?   Why are some people religious and how do they show this?   Why do some people disagree with contraception?   Does God exist?   Who was Jesus?   Why are people prejudiced?  Why are we here?   Should euthanasia be made legal in Britain? Is there a life after death? These are some of the questions we will be considering in Religious Education and we will examine them from the perspective of Christians and Muslims. We will also be challenging students to form their own ideas and answers on these and other important issues. Students will be encouraged to evaluate their responses as well as religious responses to these issues so as to develop in their own understanding of themselves and the world in which we live. Religious Education at Prince William School promotes tolerance and understanding of all faiths while giving students the opportunity to examine, discuss and develop their own views towards a number of important issues. It is particularly valuable in preparing students for their place in the world as citizens of a diverse and multi-cultural society. Religious Education is part of the basic curriculum for all students throughout the school and it is a statutory requirement for all students of school age. At Key Stage 4, students follow a GCSE short course that is in line with the Northampton Agreed Syllabus. There is an option available to upgrade this to a full GCSE.
