Home Economics develops every individual’s practical skills and knowledge. Each week pupils take part in practical cookery where they develop organisation, leadership, resilience and team working skills. While not cooking, the pupils are encouraged to build their knowledge on a wide range of food topics from health, diet, hygiene and safety, technology and food issues. In S1-S3, pupils also take part in sewing courses, which provide opportunities to acquire important life skills. The courses we offer meet national guidelines, and are constantly updated to ensure that pupils are equipped with knowledge and skills for life.
