Philosophy and Religion
Philosophy and Religion (PR) is taught once a week in Years 7 and 8. It is an option subject at KS4 to Years 9, 10 and 11 and a complete full course GCSE through the AQA exam board, studying Christianity, Buddhism and 4 Philosophical and Ethical Studies topics.
The PR Department consists of two specialist teachers plus teachers from elsewhere within Humanities. We aim to ensure that students have a clear understanding of their own faith and that of others within their local, national and global community.
The Department has strong links with different religious organisations. Visits to local religious sites take place, and people of faith regularly work both with PR classes and the whole school.
