What will I be studying?

GCSE Religious Studies allows students to study an extensive list of topics, for example: abortion/euthanasia, the death penalty, war/justice, and marriage/divorce just to name a few!

The course focuses on two religious perspectives:

Christianity and Islam.

It allows students to develop their understanding of different cultural perspectives and also develop their own view on the world and what it has to offer. Students will have an opportunity to take part in debates, pretend court trials, and take roles of lawyers. The course is assessed through two exams, one on each religion.

What can I do afterwards?

A qualification in this subject is useful in many jobs including: lawyer, police, barrister, teacher, social work, government, marketing and management.


If you're a former Graham School student or family member of a current student and work in any field of science we want to hear from you! We want to share examples of local people with our students. We would ask for a photo of you and a brief description of your role in science.
