From speaking and dealing with countless new people, from pupils in committees at school, to guests and visitors, I feel more confident in meeting new people. Also, having to take five assemblies at school developed my public speaking skills.

Business Studies & Computing

Welcome to the Business & Computing Department.

The Business & Computing department at Hamilton College teaches a wide and varied curriculum for pupils in the senior school. The department has close links to the Technology department with both departments coming together to deliver Innov8 in S1 and S2, supporting the technologies and some of the social subjects (business) outcomes of a Curriculum for Excellence. From S3 onwards pupils can chose the discreet subjects of Business Management (National 4/5 then Higher) and/or Computing Science (National 4/5 then Higher Information Systems). All courses delivered by the department are on Moodle, the schools virtual learning environment. Pupils are encouraged to use their own initiative and make links to the real world of business and computing which culminate as part of a project.
