Religious Studies tuition

One subject we get regular calls about is religious studies. We have private tutors who cover Manchester and Salford tutoring in Religious Studies to GCSE level. Parents often call us because it’s not a subject they feel comfortable supporting their child with or don’t feel they have the materials they need to tutor in their own home.

So what do you need to know about religious studies?

  • You don’t have to believe in a specific religion to study RS (sometimes called RE).
  • In the UK all state Catholic, C of E (Church of England) and Jewish schools provide compulsory religious education. It covers a variety of faiths but in most schools does focus more on Christian education.
  • The syllabus for religious studies is agreed by each local authority and there is no national curriculum – your school should be able to show you a plan of what they intend to study during the academic year.
  • As a parent you have the right to withdraw your child (with the schools agreement) from religious education.
  • If you are interested in some of the topics that your child might cover at GCSE level you can find some great introductory information on the BBC Bitesize website.
