Theology A level

What will I study in Theology A level?

Theology helps young people to discuss ideas, think critically, enjoy current affairs and contemplate the bigger questions of life. Beyond preparation for further study or a career, Theology helps pupils to have a “life well lived” marked by virtue and inquisitive, independent learning.

At A level, we follow courses in Ethics, Philosophy and the Development of Christian Thought. These courses will consider abstract issues, as well as practically applying knowledge to real issues in society today.

Universities and employers increasingly value the critical thinking skills that are honed in Theology.

Entry requirements

Good GCSEs, especially in the Humanities as pupils need to enjoy writing detailed and analytical essays.

Units of study

Philosophy, Ethics and Development of Christian Thought.

Assessment

Exam based assessment, with 3 papers at the end of Year 13.

Where could it lead?

Universities and employers increasingly value the critical thinking skills that are honed in Theology. KHS pupils have gone on to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics, medicine, international relations, languages and law at university.
