Wednesdays from 18 April to 23rd March Maths and Physics A-Level Refresher Sessions

Initial meeting in this term Philosophy in Education Network  

The University of Kent and the King’s School Canterbury are launching a philosophy in education network for teachers and students in the local area with the aim of promoting the teaching of philosophy in schools. We anticipate that the group might be of interest not only to those currently involved in following or delivering Religious Studies and/or Philosophy courses but would also be a vehicle through which to encourage the development of philosophical thinking more broadly, as for example part of the University’s Outreach support for the Extended Project Qualification.


Teachers Philosophy & Religious Studies
Wednesday 27 June Text and Language Day
