Our Vision

The Computing Department in Craigie High School is committed to developing and delivering a wide-ranging variety of up-to-date Computing courses.  Each of our courses is designed to engage our pupils, help develop their character strengths and give them the necessary skills to live and work in the digital age. Every pupil leaving Craigie High School should have a good basic knowledge of computers and will have developed valuable practical digital skills to equip them for the future.

Our department aims to deliver a curriculum which allows all of our pupils to flourish and to experience as much success as possible, taking into account their different skills, abilities and attributes.  Our courses best meet the needs of our pupils by developing their skills and knowledge so they can confidently utilise the most up to date technology.
