Sixth Form Religious Sudies

We offer Religious Studies at both AS and A2 Levels and follow the CCEA specification. At both levels we have excellent results.

AS Level (Year 13)

8 periods per week are allocated for AS Level Religious Studies.

The options chosen are:

  • AS1 An Introduction to the Gospel of Luke
  • AS4 The Christian Church in the Roman Empire: Beginnings, Expansion and External Pressure

AS1 and AS4 are taught concurrently throughout the year (4 periods / week each).

In most of the topics covered the students will be required to reflect on the relationship between their unity of study and other aspects of Human Experience.

Assessment: Each option will be assessed by an exam of 1 hour 20 minutes and includes a question on human experience.

A2 Level (Year 14)

8 weeks per week are allocated for A2 Level Religious Studies.

The options chosen are:

  • A21 The Theology of the Gospel of Luke
  • A24 The Development of the Christian Church in the Roman Empire to AD325

A21 and A24 are taught concurrently throughout Year 14 (4 periods / week each). In both options pupils will need to see the relevance of synoptic themes selected by CCEA.

Assessment: Each option will be assessed by an exam of 2 hours and includes a question on the selected synoptic theme.
