Religious Studies at Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form Free School

Course description

A Level Religious Studies helps students develop their interest in, and enthusiasm for, a rigorous study of Religion and its relation to the wider world. This four-unit specification encourages students to reflect on and develop their own values, opinions and attitudes in the light of their learning.
Students will have an opportunity to study aspects of one or more religions, including textual, theological, historical, ethical, phenomenological and philosophical perspectives. A wide choice of topics is offered for study in the areas of ethics, philosophy of religion, the world religions, aspects of Christianity, religion and art, religion and contemporary society. This course is particularly suitable for students who have studied Religious Studies at GCSE but no prior knowledge of Religious Studies is required.
