Pupils learn about prehistoric man and the Celts in S1. Many pupils retain a keen interest in the topic and demonstrate their enthusiasm by joining the school's History Club. The club went on many trips last year, including one to the Crannog Centre in Perthshire. In June a group of twenty pupils from Fortrose visited Orkney. The trip brought sites such as the famous Skara Brae and Maes Howe to life. Other visits included the Ring of Brodgar and a ruined broch in the north of the mainland.
