The Design and Technology Department aims to introduce the world of design, as well as the variety of opportunities and possibilities for our pupils to succeed. We want to develop our learners’ key skills which will be essential in order to be successful in the world of design and technology. The department provides subject specific skills and knowledge as a platform so that pupils can take their next steps and to progress on to a professional career in the creative sector or to higher education.
We study a variety of subjects within technology, and introduce a broad curriculum developing understanding. The department offers a curriculum that will stimulate interest and instil a passion for the subject. There is a strong emphasis on incorporating practical tasks into our projects. It gives you the opportunity to explore practical activities that will enable pupils to master the skills and enhance their knowledge. Through lively and interactive lessons pupils experiment with many materials, techniques, tools and machinery during the design and production of their projects.
