Welcome to The Department of Technology and Technical Education

We offer a wide range of subjects from the Technology curriculum and all subjects are carried through to Higher and Advanced Higher level.

We have two Graphics / Computer suites, a Graphics Studio, an Engineering lab , a Woodworking workshop and a multi-purpose workshop area.

The department is equipped with more than 30 personal computers, 3 interactive whiteboards, colour A3 laser printer and a variety of Engineering and Workshop items of equipment.

Our team is made up of 3 full time members of staff and 2 others contributing the equivalent of 1 extra teacher. Between us we have a wide base of knowledge and expertise which enables us to deliver the wide range of Technological Subjects.

Modern society needs technologically trained people. Whether it is the basic skills involved in putting up a curtain rail or constructing some flat pack furniture to the most complex skills in 3-dimensional design or electronics and the selection of appropriate, sustainable materials.

The skills learnt in the Technical Department make a difference both to the individual and to the quality of the environment we all live in.
