Philosophy & Ethics

'Philosophy makes us think differently and leads to praxis that forms an informed, thoughtful person who thinks about what he/she does and why' - Marek Tesar 2016

Curriculum intent and aims

Through their study of Philosophy and Ethics, we aim to:

Provide students with the means to build diverse views that open discussion towards the traditional and historical values of Great Britain

Make students to adopt the skills for enquiry, reflection, analysis and critical thinking. These skills can be used to justify views, as well as, showing respect for other people’s opinions. Furthermore, they can reflect on their own values opinions and attitudes in their own learning.

Expose students to philosophical debates with special focus on ethical considerations.

Equip students with the skills they will need to continue to develop their philosophical understanding within the society.
