Why Study this Subject? 

Food Technology lessonStudying Design Technology encourages creative thinking and activity. It helps students to develop the cognitive and practical skills involved in problem solving and intelligent decision-making.

Our aim as a department is to make students aware of the world around them and how technology has an impact on the environment and its resources.

Through our teaching we seek to establish an understanding of the principles of design and a personal command of the design process. We will provide experience of the nature and uses of a variety of materials and manufacturing processes.

Students will become aware of the changes occurring in the world today as a result of the technological innovation in the home and at work, whilst encouraging the application of technological understanding to the solving of problems or tasks in order to improve the quality of life.

Design Technology will stimulate the discussion of values of an aesthetic, technical, economical and moral nature. Through the curriculum we will help to emphasise the integrated nature of Design and Technology and its strong links with other subject areas.
