ENGLISH 

Our English department strives to instil both knowledge and enthusiasm for words in our pupils. Through a range of texts, topics and tasks, pupils are given the very best guidance through this rewarding course of study.  

While English is fundamental to effective communication, it is also a field of study which enriches the lives of those who embrace it. Our English department has a record of delivering excellent results but, more than this, it instils an enthusiasm for novels, poetry, drama and non-fiction.

All of our English staff use the subject to help pupils develop empathy and understanding of the world in which they live, giving them the confidence and knowledge to express their feelings and ideas.

HEALTH IMROVEMENT FACULTY

Our Physical Education and Home Economics departments provide both a solid grounding for pupils, as well a platform for those to specialise in these areas of study. Our school believes firmly in mens sana in corpore sano and our Health Improvement faculty ensures that all pupils understand the importance of taking health matters seriously, in school and out.

Our football, netball, hockey and other teams compete with other schools, locally, regionally and nationally, giving Monifieth High pupils the competitive experiences which enrich their learning.

SOCIAL SUBJECTS FACULTY 

History, Geography, Modern Studies and R.M.P.S. give our pupils a broad and thorough understanding of the myriad factors which make up the world in which they live. 

An understanding of the world in which we live is the cornerstone of a well-rounded education. This is fostered in History, Geography, Modern Studies and R.M.P.S. more than anywhere else in the school.
 
Monifieth High's Social Subjects faculty has a proven track-record of academic achievement, whilst always giving pupils the experiences that allow them to see fully why the world is as it is.

MODERN FOREIGN
LANGUAGES DEPT.

In an interconnected world, the importance of foreign languages has never been more apparent. Our M.F.L. department gives pupils the tools they need to understand, apply and love non-English languages.

 

Never before have foreign languages been so important; in the last twenty years the internet has shrunk our world, bringing countless new opportunities and applications for non-English language. Our pupils receive experienced instruction and guidance in French and Spanish, arming pupils with the confidence to express themselves in another language, whether in examination, or when on holiday.

Additional Support Needs 

Irrespective of ability, a pupil may encounter difficulties with learning.
 
These difficulties may be long or short term and the ASN department work closely with subject departments to ensure that learners are supported appropriately.
Our aim is to go beyond simply providing a safety net; we enable learners to develop an awareness of themselves, and develop coping strategies for life after school, while fostering a balance between academic achievement and personal/social achievement.
We understand the importance of working collegiately across sectors with staff, parents, pupils and outside agencies in order to promote the inclusion of all.
