GCSE Theology

 

Since the beginning of time, humans have engaged in activities that we now call religion and whether you are theist, atheist or agnostic, studying religion will help you develop a set of skills that are transferable into just about any future study or career.

Theology is a stimulating GCSE that will provide opportunity for students to engage in current issues whilst developing social, cultural, political and historical awareness. Through studying Theology, the students will develop an understanding of their own values and beliefs whilst gaining a greater sense of their own identity. The study of religion helps students to learn how to think critically, listen empathetically, speak thoughtfully and write clearly.
