The RME department aims to encourage pupils to explore the big questions of life; Is there a God?, How did the Universe begin?, Is there an afterlife?, Why do people have to suffer?, How can I know anything for certain? The department also looks at belief systems across the world, encouraging a respect for the views and traditions of others.
RME is offered as a core part of the curriculum for S1-3 and, afterwards currently Philosophy is offered at Higher level in S5/6.
