Religious Education - Highers/Advanced Highers
St. Margaret’s  High School

RMPS Higher

Certificate Courses – Religious and Moral Philosophical Studies
 
Since its re-introduction in Session 2004/5, with an uptake of S6 only, the results for our candidates have been consistently good.  Session 2014/15 was particularly successful, with all 19 Candidates achieving a Pass, resulting in the total of 10As, 5Bs and 5Cs.
 
Session 2015/16 sees us embark on the introduction of the New Higher RMPS.
 
The Course is taught in an imaginative and stimulating way, with the emphasis being heavily on students to take responsibility for their own learning.
 
Three teachers are involved;

Jim Quinn – Judaism (20 Marks)
Bernadette Reilly - Religion and Science (“Origins of Life” )(20 Marks)
Helen McLaren/AnneMarie Miller – Religion and Justice (20 Marks)
In addition, students are asked to complete an Assignment (30 Marks) which is completed before the Final Exam.
 
This approach works well, and students often comment on how much they appreciate this structure.
 
While “Core RE” remains our “Raison D’Etre”, we enjoy teaching the Higher almost as much as the students enjoy being taught by us!
