At Millfield we believe that Philosophy is not something that should be simply studied; we encourage our pupils to debate and experience it. After all, Philosophy is about asking ‘why?’ and not simply accepting everything we hear and see. The course is rigorous and stimulating; it covers theory of knowledge, the human mind, ethics and an analysis of the concept of God. A Level Philosophy offer a stimulating blend of debate, enquiry, tutorial and analysis, which prepares pupils well for further education.
