Sixth Form Personal, Health, Social and Economic Education 

Nottingham Academy Sixth Form students follow a two-year personal, health, social and economic education. Religious and moral education is a key theme that is covered with ideas such as ’my world and how I see it’.

Students have the opportunity to:

  • Understand and respect different religions, beliefs, spirituality and lifestyles in our community. For example, what impact does religion play in conflict on a personal, community and global level?
  • Investigate, analyse and justify their knowledge and understanding of the role and influence of religion and beliefs in the wider world. For instance, a debate on medical ethics and practice.
  • Develop a personal sense of meaning, to understand their historical, cultural and social purpose in their own lives and how they relate to others. For example, how do beliefs have an impact on gender roles?
  • Evaluate different viewpoints to develop their skills to present a reasoned opinion in a well-informed argument. For instance, debating the existence of God and issues of good and evil.
