Philosophy, Religion and Ethics
Key Stage 3
Philosophy, religion and ethics is an up and coming subject within the school. At Key Stage 3 we look at philosophical concepts within all of the six main world religions, and also Humanist perspectives. We offer trips to the Bhaktivedanta Manor (Hare Krishna Temple in Watford), and have close links with St Mary's Church in Chesham. In Year 7 we look at Community, Identity and Religious Art; in Year 8 Values, Being Human and Christianity in the 21st Century and in Year 9, we look at deeper philosophical ideas, constructing arguments and the case of conjoined twins, Mary and Jodie.
In Key Stage 4, we offer both short course and full course GCSE with OCR covering both philosophy and ethics. These include topics such as belief in God, life after death, human relationships and medical ethics. The course content comprises Christianity for philosophy, religion and ethics (75%) and the study of beliefs and practices in Islam (25%).
In the Sixth Form we offer Religious Studies.
