Religious Studies will turn your world upside down, turn childish thoughts into mature ideas, and turn darkness into light. The topics studied in Religious Studies at Blackpool Aspire Academy inevitably lead to fascinating, mystifying and sometimes outrageous aspects of the human experience. The topics studied are based on concepts surrounding popular culture, violence, the environment, social change and emotional life. In addition to the content of the units studied, there is a focus on critical thinking about religion, empathy and tolerance towards other cultures and customs, and religious knowledge. Let’s face it, religion is one of the most powerful social and cultural forces in human history.
