Philosophy

KEY STAGE 5 SUMMARY

We study AQA Philosophy in a two year course which will be moving to linear in 2017.

It is a very academic A Level which remains highly respected for the grounding it gives students in logic, argumentation and essay writing skills.

The four main topics are:

  • Ethics
  • Epistemology (the study of knowledge)
  • Philosophy of mind
  • Metaphysics of God
  • Learning Ladders

In RE/Citizenship the Learning Ladders will help students to identify the main skills they will need to display in any upcoming module or assessment.

Key Stage 3 – there is a Learning Ladder for each unit, make sure you use the correct one.

Key Stage 4 and 5 – the Learning Ladders focus on each of the elements of the exam paper.

The intention would be that each subject page would have a series of links to Learning Ladders like this:

  Autumn 1 Autumn 2 Spring 1 Spring 2 Summer 1 Summer 2
