The Religious Education Department has a central role in the life at St George Catholic Voluntary Aided College. As a core subject we provide, not only academic study for all students appropriate to their ability, but also the opportunity for spiritual growth and an increase of social awareness.
All students at Key Stage 3 follow a syllabus written by the Portsmouth Diocese called "Open the Door". It is designed as a follow on from God Matters, the syllabus studied in Catholic Primary Schools. It is structured and shaped to consider questions about identity, purpose and fulfilment in the light of Christian faith. It also includes a study of other world religions.
At Key Stage 4, all students follow a Full Course GCSE examination. At St George we currently follow the WJEC Specification A, studying units 3 and 4, Roman Catholicism 1 and Roman Catholicism 2. All students are entered for an examination at the end of Year 11
