Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

The Religious Studies department teaches a broad and balanced curriculum based on the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus. We teach all students from Year 7 to Year 11 and have a significant cohort of sixth form students pursuing AS and A2 studies.

At KS3, we aim to learn about a wide range of religious beliefs and practices, drawing inspiration and examples from faith and non-faith traditions. At KS4, students may opt to study for the AQA GCSE Religious Studies, focusing on a more detailed approach to both Christianity and Islam and issues connected to them. All KS4 students also attend one lesson per week as part of our ‘Wellbeing’ programme, exploring moral, social, spiritual, cultural and ethical issues that may affect young people now, and in the future.

At KS5, students currently work towards the OCR AS or A2 Religious Studies qualification. Here, students are engaged in a study of the Philosophy of Religion, Religious Ethics and Hinduism, all of which provide excellent opportunities for both personal and academic challenge.
