Design & Technology

Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. We encourage students to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team.  


Students use their creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Through a variety of creative and practical activities, we teach the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in an iterative process of designing and making, using research to develop design criteria to inform the design of innovative, functional, appealing products that are fit for purpose, aimed at particular individuals or groups.
