In Design and Technology, we aim to provide a ‘well rounded’ experience of design and making, with a view to preparing students to participate in tomorrow’s rapidly changing technologies.

They are encouraged to think and intervene creatively to design and improve quality of life, to promote creative problem solving, and to create solutions using their practical skills.

The school offers a suite of facilities within Design and Technology including textile rooms for working with fabrics and cloth, food rooms for cooking and nutrition, a graphics room for technical and presentation designing and a workshop for working with wood plastics and metal.
