Philosophy & Ethics and Politics

Curriculum Intent 

Religious, cultural, philosophical and ethical exploration is at the heart of every academic discipline in school. An acute awareness for diversity, difference and challenge is central for humans to flourish and in all philosophical walks has the mantra of learn and enquire been central. Philosophy and Ethics is designed to challenge students to become more aware – not just of themselves, but of others and the multiple factors that affects groups around the world. From religious dress to ethical decision making, this subject is essential for a firm grounding in how the human condition works. The intention for studying this course, at KS3 all the way to KS5, is to develop a holistic appreciation for the people that live and for those that have come before and to use this information to become a better member of society, and more reflective in the world of business and employment. Our passion is our subject and we aim to make use of art, literature, music, film, the written and the spoken word, to bring alive the subject content.
