Wick High School Tartan Revealed


Our school badge proudly displayed on our new tartan

The tartan was designed over the course of this year by  S3 pupils, the Art Department

and Martin Gill of Blackstairs Highlandwear and we think you’ll agree that it is a beautiful

piece of work which we hope will represent the school for generations to come.

Work will now begin on creative projects designed to showcase the unique design, ranging

from incorporating it in to items of clothing from our dress code to products such as bags,

mobile phone covers etc.

We also hope to see our tartan used as a visual representation of the school; featuring

on the school website and other official communications.

Funding from the Bilbster fund was applied for and granted towards the costs of this project.

90 jobs For Wick in £2.5 Billion Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm

Photograph of 90 Jobs For Wick in £2.5 Billion Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm

* 84 turbines will provide 588MW of power once operational in 2019.

* New windfarm expects to provide an average annual gross employment in Scotland of over 890 jobs during construction and is one of Scotland's largest private infrastructure project.

*The project is expected to power roughly 450,000 homes; approximately three times the number of homes in the Moray and Highland regions.

The £2.6bn Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd (BOWL) project has been given the green light for construction by owners SSE (40%), Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) (35%) and SDIC Power (25%) after the project reached Financial Close. The project will be one of the largest private investments ever made in Scottish infrastructure. 

The 588MW, 84 turbine project, situated in the Outer Moray Firth, was consented by the Scottish Government in March 2014 and granted an Investment Contract by the UK Government in May 2014. 

Work at the operations and maintenance facility in Wick and the transmission works in Moray will commence this year. Offshore construction will begin in 2017. The wind farm is expected to become fully operational in 2019. 

Beatrice is expected to bring a range of socio-economic benefits to the local, regional, Scottish and UK economies during both the construction and operational phases. Expected opportunities include job creation, skills training, investment in Scottish ports and harbours, supply chain opportunities and community benefit funding.

Paul Cooley, Director of Renewables at SSE, stated: "We are delighted that Beatrice has achieved Financial Close and we are extremely grateful for all of the support received throughout the development of the project from stakeholders such as the Scottish Government, DECC, HIE, the Highland Council, Moray Council and local communities. Contracts have already been placed with many UK based suppliers, and Siemens intend to undertake turbine blade construction from Siemen's new manufacturing facility in Hull. 

"Around £10m of investment is planned at Wick Harbour to house the wind farm's operations and maintenance facilities and improving the existing RNLI facilities. We expect a peak of around 65 jobs during construction of the O and M base with around 90 long-term jobs anticipated during the operational phase'.
