Pupils that have chosen to study Ethics and Philosophy at GCSE level will study the OCR Religious Studies course. Throughout the two years, pupils will have the opportunity to study a number of philosophical and ethical issues relevant to today’s society. Topics include areas such as Medical Ethics, Peace and Justice, Equality, and the Religion v Science debate.
They will develop a variety of skills whilst they explore different perspectives on the topics. These include analysis, evaluation, empathy, and debate.
Pupils are assessed at the end of KS4, sitting four single hour exams.
