Key Stage 3

We aim to give pupils in KS3 a broad understanding of key beliefs in Christianity, Islam and Judaism. We also study key issues in life from a variety of religious and non-religious perspectives. In KS3 we introduce pupils to basic knowledge and skills required for those who choose to take Religious Studies as a GCSE examination course in KS4.

Year 7 topics include:

  • Skills
  • What do Christians believe?
  • What do Muslims believe?
  • What do Jews believe?

Year 8 topics include:

  • What is God?
  • Where did the world come from?
  • Is there life after death?
  • Moral issues

Assessment is done through a range of activities including controlled assessments and project work.
