The Vocational Department consists of six subjects; Business Studies, Computing, Design & Technology, Engineering, and Hospitality & Catering.
Design and Technology, Engineering, and Hospitality & Catering are inspiring, rigorous and practical subjects which prepare all young people to live and work in the designed and made world.
