Design and Technology

The Design and Technology Department, also known as 'DT', boasts an array of modern equipment. It is split between a classroom area where desk-based work can be carried out and a well-resourced workshop.

Throughout their time at the school, children will experience working with different types of resistant materials; textiles; food technology and IT amongst many other things. Besides learning material-specific techniques, it is our aim that by Year 8, each child:

  • Enjoys designing and making in a safe environment
  • Develops creative and problem-solving skills
  • Can conduct research and use it to inform their designs
  • Can express their designs visually, clearly and effectively
  • Can evaluate their own work and express viewpoints constructively
  • Understands the importance of the different stages of the design process and appreciates the made world, including styles and visual statements, and the context of time and place
