In the Technical Department, we aim to deliver a broad and cohesive curriculum that will full equip pupils for their lives post school, whatever their destination. The department uses a varied range of learning and teaching approaches to ensure all pupils are included and access the full range of courses we have to offer!

In S1-S2 pupils attend the department two times a week, split between the classroom and the workshop. Pupils will cover a range of activities to build skills in:

  • Woodwork
  • Metalwork
  • Plastics
  • Technical drawing
  • 3D modelling
  • Sketching and Rendering

In S3, pupils are able to focus on a particular area of the curriculum by choosing from the following subjects:

  • Practical Woodworking
  • Design and Manufacture
  • Graphic Communication

Focusing on a particular area of the curriculum will prepare pupils for National 4 and 5 courses in the senior phase, developing fundamental skills and knowledge to ensure success.

In the senior phase, pupils are able to choose from the following subjects:

  • Graphic Communication (National 4 – Higher)
  • Design and Manufacture (National 4 – Higher)
  • Practical Woodworking (National 4 – 5)
  • Practical Metalworking (National 4 – 5) S5/6 pupils only.

Pupils are able to choose more than one subject at a time. These courses feed directly into a number of college courses, apprenticeships and further education courses to help pupils kick start their career in industry.
