Religious Education

Head of Department: Miss F Allen

Department Introduction

The aim of RE is to develop students spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness and understanding. 
At Herne Bay High School we seek to do this by:


The main religion studied is Christianity but students will study a number of other religions over the course of their time at Herne Bay High. Students also study philosophical and ethical issues.

At Key Stage 4, GCSE Level we offer both the Full Course GCSE option subject and the Short Course qualification. We follow the AQA specification where students study a range of moral issues from a Christian and Muslim perspective.

At Key Stage 5, AS / A2 Level students follow the AQA specification and build upon what has been covered at GCSE. Students study ethical and philosophical issues affecting the world today.
