Religious Studies

Edxcel Religious Studies GCSE

All students in Year 10 have one lesson of Religious Studies per week which leads them to completing a full GCSE in Religious Studies at the end of Year 11. The syllabus in Year 10 covers key beliefs and practices from both Islam and Christianity. In Islam, this consists of the six main articles of faith, the five pillars, the different denominations and practices within Islam and key festivals. Within the Christian faith, we look at the practice of Christianity, both in the UK and across the world, and the key beliefs of Christianity including the Nicene Creed, the Trinity and the life of Jesus. We then apply these teaching to more philosophical and ethical issues, the study of which continue into Year 11.
