Theology

We promote and equip students with valuable skills for their future development

The Religious Studies course at The Oratory School enables pupils to focus in depth on the Catholic faith, by looking at beliefs, teachings, practices, sources of authority and forms of expression within Catholic Christianity. Pupils will broaden their understanding of religion by studying the beliefs and practices of another major world faith – Judaism. There is also the opportunity to engage with scripture in depth through the study of St Mark's gospel. This specification will not only helps pupils understand theological concepts and religious doctrines, but it will also promote and equip pupils with valuable skills for their future development, such as analytical and critical thinking, the ability to work with abstract ideas, leadership, and research skills.
