Society & Ethics

Society and Ethics (S & E) explores contemporary moral and ethical issues. Allowing pupils to form their own opinions on topics such as abortion, euthanasia, genetic engineering, capital punishment and racism.

S & E also prepares pupils for life in a multi-cultural, multi-faith society. Alongside forming their own attitudes pupils look at attitudes in various world faiths, considering how they are formed.

S & E is a compulsory subject from Year 7-11. GCSE S & E will be an option from next year with those that don’t pick the subject completing Core S & E instead.
