Key Stage 3

The Life course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the GCSE RS course in Key Stage 4. Religious Studies is important because it equips students with cultural, social, moral and spiritual knowledge that aids in emotional and physical development within society. The lessons learned in Religious Studies prepares students for responsibilities, experiences and opportunities to enable them to become a positive role-model within society later in life.

It is paramount that students acquire the knowledge and understanding of the beliefs and practices of the religions and worldviews which not only shape their history and culture but which guide their own development both morally and socially. The modern world needs young people who are sufficiently confident in their own beliefs and values to enable them to respect the religious and cultural differences of others and also allow them to positively contribute to a cohesive and compassionate society.
