Religion, Philosophy and Ethics


Religion, Philosophy and Ethics (RPE) is a subject designed to give a deeper understanding of major world religions and explore some philosophical questions asked by human beings since the dawn of civilisation. What is truth? Who am I? Does God exist? These are questions that frequently appear in RPE lessons and pupils will have the opportunity to explore them with a range of points of views.

In RPE, students at CBA study three inter-linked disciplines:

  • Theology: Examines the human experience of faith, and how different people and cultures express it. It also looks at how some world views are accepted as truths by some and challenged by others. The study of religions is done with the purpose of comparison and in order to find common grounds among all faiths for the purpose of understanding and tolerance.
  • Philosophy: The study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, especially when considered as an academic discipline. We tackle of philosophical questions such as Is there life after death? And Is evil necessary for humanity? Through different lenses, religious, sociological, ethical, scientific etc…
  • Ethics: The branch of knowledge that deals with moral principles that govern a person's behaviour or the conducting of an activity. We explore ethical issues and their growing importance in a the modern, less religious, era. • Lessons & Groupings Pupils are taught in their tutor group with work differentiated and personalised to meet their needs and abilities. Lessons are shaped around the scheme of work enquiry questions. They involve a combination of learning activities, written assignments, interactive learning, discussion group work and classroom-based presentations.
