The CDT department has 6 full-time, dedicated, members of staff. This has allowed us to provide pupils with a varied and engaging range of subjects that will both challenge and stimulate them

In S1 the pupils work on a series of design and make exercises incorporating wood, metal & plastic, introducing them to new skills and developing many that they had begun in primary. They are also
introduced to the subject of renewable energy and how they can influence the future. They will also have an opportunity to develop a variety of graphics skills and techniques. These skills are further developed in S2 where they take on more challenging design tasks are explored. They will gain an understanding of how to use drawing equipment to develop their abilities with graphic techniques.
