Welcome to the Technical Department!
The Technical department offers a number of wide and varied courses which cater for students from S1-S6. Within S1 and S2 students will study and develop skills within Design, Practical work and Graphics. In S3 students will build on the skills and experiences gained within the first 2 years and will specialise in either Design and Manufacture, Graphic Communication or Practical Woodwork. In the senior phase, students can study from National 4 till Advanced Higher.
The aim of the Technical department is to provide stimulating learning in a modern department that allows students to develop skills that will prepare them for life beyond school.
