S1-S2: We rotate disciplines to give pupils the chance to develop their skills in Woodwork, Graphic Communication, Engineering Science and Design and Manufacture. We aim to develop an understanding of the role and impact of technologies in changing and influencing societies. Students will learn how to contribute to building a better world by taking responsible, ethical actions to improve my life, the lives of others and the environment. Our pupils will gain the confidence and skills to embrace and use technologies now and in the future, at home, at work and in the wider community. The department aims to broaden the understanding of the role that information and communications technology (ICT) has in Scotland and in the global community as well as develop an awareness of how ideas in mathematics and science are used in engineering and the technologies. We let students experience work-related learning, and establish firm foundations for lifelong learning, and specialised study and careers.
S3-S5: Pupils may then choose from Graphic Communication and Woodwork, which can be studied up to Higher and National 5 respectively these courses build on skills taught during S1 and S2.
