“From day one, Carmel has consistently been a place for me to flourish; especially the Theology, Philosophy & Ethics department.
What’s special about the subject is how it gives you a greater world view, a critical perception of what we consider right and wrong, and helps you perfect your analysis skills through essay writing. I often find myself using the evaluation skills that are emphasised in this subject in both my other A-Levels, especially since all my subjects are essay based. As a department we’ve taken trips to Liverpool Cathedral and the Walker Art Gallery which was a perfect place to discuss how philosophical problems, such as Plato’s theory of forms, are expressed through classical art.
After Carmel, I hope to go to university to study classics, where the knowledge and skills of logic, analysis and evaluation I’ve gained through studying this subject will be transferable, and truly invaluable.”
