Prince William School

KS3 Curriculum

The Key Stage 3 curriculum in Religious Studies is designed to introduce students to the concepts of religion and beliefs. There are opportunities to study both Christianity and Buddhism as a grounding for further work later in the school. Students enjoy the philosophical and moral issues we present them with across Key Stage 3 and they have opportunities to share their views while examining the views of others, both religious and secular.
