Religious Education

Religious Education has a part in a holistic education for pupils. 

Whether religious or not religion has, and still does, influence our society and everyday life. During RE lessons pupils are encouraged to further their spiritual, moral, social and cultural education, including the Fundamental British Values. Our aim is to enable and encourage pupils to explore aspects of existence, the universe and everything! From Year 7 pupils are also encouraged to extend their critical analysis, justification and evaluation skills – all necessary life skills.

Trips

  • Year 8 trip to Rochester with the History Department
  • 6th form trips to Philosophy and Ethics conferences

Key Stage 3

 

Pupils study several themes referring to Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism exploring many different aspects of life. Pupils are always given the opportunity to explore themes in relation to their own life, even if they are not religious, such as rights and responsibilities, rites of passage and justice to name but a few. Please see the attached curriculum overview for more detail.

A level

 

The A level syllabus is divided into 3 sections:

  • Philosophy
  • Ethics
  • Christian Theology

This is an academic subject which gives pupils the opportunity to truly extend their critical analysis, justification and evaluation skills and their ability to really think ‘outside the box’!

Many pupils have gone on to study the subject, or related subjects, at university.
