A Level

The course followed is Religious Studies as offered by the Eduqas Examining Board.

Component 1: A Study of Religion

Students will be assessed on Option A: Christianity

This component provides students with the opportunity to undertake an in-depth and broad study of their chosen religion covering themes ranging from religious figures and sacred texts to practices that shape religious identity.

Component 2: Philosophy of Religion

This component provides students with the opportunity to undertake an in-depth and broad study of fundamental philosophical themes, ranging from arguments for the existence of God to the use of religious language.

Component 3: Religion and Ethics

This component provides students with the opportunity to undertake an in-depth and broad study of fundamental ethical themes, ranging from ethical language and thought to freewill and determinism.

 In recent years we have supported our students’ A Level learning by attending the annual “Academy Conferences” Religious Studies conference at Bloomsbury Baptist Church, which allows students to immerse themselves in a day of lectures from leading Theologians, and participate in a controversial debate at the end of the day.
