ICT

Shawlands Academy has nine dedicated ICT suites in addition to the ICT facilities available in the school library. All computer terminals are linked to the Glasgow Schools Network, giving access to both a wide variety of software applications and a high speed broadband internet connection.

ICT skills are delivered to S1 and S2 pupils by Computing and Business Education subject specialists during ICT lessons. The skills which pupils develop in ICT lessons are utilised in almost every other subject area throughout the course of their school careers.

At the end of S2, pupils can elect to study ICT related subjects to Standard Grade and Higher level. The related subjects are Standard Grade Computing Studies (progressing to Higher Computing), Standard Grade Administration (progressing to Higher Administration) and Standard Grade Business Management (progressing to Higher Business Management).
