Bringing to life the foundations of faith and practice
Here, you'll find everything you need to prepare for GCSE Religious Studies A from 2016, including the accredited specifications and sample assessment materials.
Allows students to undertake an in-depth study of Catholic Christianity, Christianity or Islam, and encourages a critical and reflective approach to the study of religion. This specification allows for a greater emphasis to be placed on the study of one religion and brings to life the foundations of faith and practice.
We enable co-teachability of our full and short course for specification A, so you can select the most appropriate route for each student.
Offers flexibility in religions and topics to ensure it is relevant and engaging to your students, including the option to choose Philosophy and Ethics or a Textual Study of Mark’s Gospel or the Qur’an.
Our straightforward assessments are designed to be accessible to all students with a clear structure and easy to follow command words. In addition, our exam papers are split by religion, helping students to focus when it comes to revising.
We’ll provide a programme of teaching and learning support to help you plan and deliver your chosen course and understand fully the new content and assessment requirements.
