The Technology Department
Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.
Pupils acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and wellbeing of the nation.
The teaching style in Design and Technology involves a formal delivery by the teacher of the knowledge, skills and principles that are integral to the specific subject area and project.
The pupils then apply their learning and work independently or in teams to develop a successful design solution.
