The teachers were great role models and gave me a lot of encouragement as I went through my school life.

Art

Pupils are encouraged to express their creative gifts using a wide variety of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and design. Regular art gallery and museum visits develop the appreciation of art in all its forms. The annual residential visit to a centre in the Highlands fosters the development of creative skills.

In S1 and S2 the pupils develop an understanding and appreciation of art and design vocabulary.  At National 4/5 level Expressive and Design are explored further and if successful the next step is Higher.  At this level pupils start to engage in deeper levels of problem solving and working with design briefs.  At Advanced Higher personal vision and greater self-reliance are demanded throughout the course.

A significant number of pupils go to Art Schools to study at undergraduate level and there is an increasing number of former pupils who are successful professional artists and designers.
