Dunfermline High School

Home Economics

Welcome to Dunfermline High School’s Home Economics Department! 


Aiming to help students develop valuable and transferable skills that will be useful to them for the workplace and the rest of their life.

During S1, S2 and S3 pupils in Home Economics get the opportunity to work through the Health and Well Being and Technology Outcomes set out by the Curriculum for Excellence.

Through practical activities, learners will develop a range of food preparation and cookery techniques and the confidence to use different equipment to make a range of dishes. They will also develop an appreciation of eating as an enjoyable experience that varies within social and cultural settings.

During Textile Technology, learners will develop creativity, dexterity and design and apply this to create a number of personalised textile items using a number of textile skills.

Within S3 Home Economics pupils will be working though the HWB and Technology Outcome with a specific course focus.  For Session  2021/22 we have offered Hospitality: Practical Cookery and Early Learning and Childcare.  These will be delivered at Level 4 and will prepare pupils for studying these courses at National Qualificator SQA level in S4.

Summarised outlines for each year and course can be accessed by clicking the links on the contents section of this page.
