Religious Education is studied by all students at Sidmouth College. It is a lively and interesting subject in which students are encouraged to learn about others, express opinions and think carefully about important questions. A variety of religious and non-religious viewpoints are considered and students are left to make their own decisions about issues of faith and purpose. The courses allow many opportunities for meeting visitors, taking part in trips and activities and working with other subjects.
What do students study?
Can I make sense of religion?
Can I make sense of the world?

Introduction to GCSE: Islam
We study particularly the religions of Islam, Sikhism and Buddhism, alongside Christianity. Other religious beliefs and the viewpoints of Humanism are also studied.
How are students assessed?
Students are given half termly assessments. These could take the form of an assessed homework, a project, a piece of extended writing, a debate or a more formal test. Many assessments take the form of GCSE style questions to help students prepare for the type of questions they will face in KS4.
