Any student with a proven record of accomplishment of sound skills in Humanities/English is welcome on our A level course, whilst those who took RS GCSE will have the opportunity to take their acquired knowledge to a much higher level. The course will appeal to anyone who has a genuine interest in religious thought and practice, philosophical and ethical perspectives and provides an excellent basis for continued study at university.
Most of our students will most likely have studied RS and the GCSE may provide them with a foundation of some of the religious teachings, ideas and terminology. However, the REP A level quickly builds on this from a starting point of assuming no prior knowledge.
The REP A level is a very flexible qualification. It is a recognised academic Humanities subject and many students proceed to Russell Group universities (including Oxbridge) to read for a wide range of subject-related degrees. In addition, positive research has demonstrated the esteem in which employers hold the subject, due to the breadth of the required analytical, critical and independent research skills.
REP is profitably studied in tandem with related Humanities subjects, with Sciences, with Ancient and Modern Languages and with the Creative Arts. Students in recent years have gone on to study Philosophy, PPE, Law, English Literature, Nursing, Fine Art, Medicine, Anthropology, Theology, Economics, Biology, Geography, Drama, Business, Psychology and Sociology.
