Why are we here?
Does God exist?
Should we be able to choose our own death?
When does life begin?
Does religion cause peace or conflict?
Who am I?
Do we all have the same rights?
These are some of the many questions we will explore within Religion, Philosophy and Culture. PRC encourages students to explore, question and evaluate what they believe about the world in which we live. It is taught in a manner that enables students to develop spiritual, moral, social and cultural values.
PRC encourages the values of tolerance, sensitivity towards others and enables students to combat prejudice as students learn about lifestyle choices and beliefs. It teaches students to have respect for others and self and address questions that matter.
At Key Stage 3, all students follow the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus which is topic based study linked to the six major world religions Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism and Judaism.
At Key Stage 4, students who choose PRC follow the WJEC Religious Studies GCSE. These two papers are Religion and Life and Religion and Human Experience. Students investigate and respond to a variety of social and moral issues such as war and peace, medical ethics, crime and punishment and animal experimentation.
The study of PRC encourages lively debate, provokes deep thinking, and nurtures creative learning which supports the 21st Century learner.
