We've never found any weapons or drugs during our random searches - the fact that we actually conduct these searches helps to keep it this way.


From this week we are doubling the number of random searches of students’ bags, jackets and lockers. It’s crucial we keep up an active and visible deterrent so students don’t make daft decisions and bring in something which would endanger our community.

RE / Religion and Philosophy

RE is an option subject at Harris Academy Greenwich which is available for students to study from year 9. The course at Key Stage 3 and 4 allows students to learn from and about religion, preparing for their examination at the end of year 11, AQA RE GCSE A.

This is a humanities course that builds fantastic knowledge and skills to understand and evaluate Christian and Muslim faith and practice, and applying these religions to important themes in society. Themes that you get to consider at Year 9 and during your GCSE will include: matters of life and death, relationships, war and conflict, and living in a multi-ethnic and multi-faith society.

How the course works: The GCSE is a two year linear course sitting summative exams in Year 11, but with mock exams at the end of Year 10. It is taught over two lessons per week, in lessons you will enjoy a range of activities and teaching styles, including discussion and debate, philosophical investigation, quizzes and multiple choice tests, and extended writing. You will learn how to develop your opinion and how to write an academic argument. You will study each of the key religions in depth and learn about their beliefs, holy texts, and important figures and how they show their faith. In Year 11 you will apply everything you have learnt about the religions to four philosophical themes: Theme A: Relationships and families; Theme B: Religion and life; Theme D: Religion, peace and conflict; Theme E: Religion, crime and punishment. In every lesson we will do short tests on past content to help us all remember what we learnt in past lessons and year 10.

Course content:

Year 10:

Term 1 – Paper 1 - Christian faith, belief and practice.

Term 2 – Paper 1 - Islamic faith, belief and practice.

Term 3 – Paper 1 - Revision

Term 4 – Paper 2 - Religion and life.

• Beliefs, practices and sources of authority

• Influence on individuals, communities and societies

• Similarities and differences within and/or between religions and beliefs.

AO2: Analyse and evaluate aspects of religion and belief, including their significance and influence.

These will be tested across two exam papers:

Paper 1 – The Study of Religions (1.45 hours, 50% of GCSE, mixture of short and long written questions)

Paper 2 – Applying the Religions to Four Themes (1.45 hours, 50% of GCSE, mixture of short and long written questions)

Careers/Higher Education:

This subject is highly regarded at GCSE and A Level and can lead to the further study of Philosophy, Ethics, Theology or Religious Studies at university. It also helps people who want to study Law, History, Sociology, Psychology, Classics, English, Publishing and many more artistic subjects at degree level. This subject helps you to develop discussion skills, communication and debating skills, as well as how to write and explain an academic argument: an essential skill at A Level. 


People who study RE can pursue a range of career paths, such as law, business, medicine, politics, publishing and writing, council and community work, charity work or education.
