KS3 - Subject Information
At KS3 students follow the Kent Agreed Syllabus and the Diocese of Canterbury requirements for the study of RE. This ensures that 70% of what is taught is Christianity. Primarily students study Christianity through the ‘Understanding Christianity’ course as well as AQA GCSE material in year 9. They will also study a range of different worldviews and religions, including Sikhism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and Judaism.

At St George’s we follow the AQA Specification A course, with a focus on Christianity and Islam as well as the themes of ‘Religion and families’, ‘Religion and life’, ‘Peace and conflict’ and ‘Crime and Punishment’.
We are required to ensure all students in Sixth Form receive some religious education, which is delivered in the form of enrichment mornings, afternoons or days, with a focus on a religious or ethical issue.
