Technology and Applied Studies

Leader of Learning - Technology & Applied Studies - Mrs Julie Elliott

The curriculum is diverse as it covers many subject areas appealing to a wide range of students. All subjects provide students with skills and knowledge, which will prove invaluable throughout their lives. Throughout their studies, students will be provided with opportunities to develop their organisational, fine motor, problem solving, design and applied literacy and numeracy skills.
