Key Stage 3

RE in Year 7 and 8

Key Stage 3 Overview

Year 7
 In Year 7 students are introduced to the major world religions, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. Students study a variety of ideas, rituals, festivals and rites of passage. They will consider the role that religion plays in society and what it may mean in their own lives.
Year 8
An in-depth study is then carried out in Year 8, focusing on Judaism, Christianity and Islam. This provides a contrast and comparison of the Abrahamic faiths.

Within KS3 our students are encouraged to explore their own beliefs and are introduced to the belief system of Humanism.
