Why AQA Religious Studies?

Our courses provide an opportunity for students to engage with a variety of topical questions around belief, values, meaning, purpose and truth.

Students will be able to reflect on and develop their own values, beliefs and attitudes in light of what they have learnt.There will be a range of relevant and contemporary themes to study that will promote awareness of modern-world issues and engagement within the classroom.

Students of all abilities will be challenged and inspired, whilst developing valuable skills sought after by higher education and employers.
