Design & Technology
Curriculum Leader: Mr D. Allen
The D&T department aims to develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of contemporary and traditional design by working through a range of topics, including design and make projects, modelling activities and focused research tasks.
The subject is taught by an enthusiastic group of teachers who have a wide variety of analytical, design and making skills, including traditional hand skills, and computer-based skills, meaning that students are well-informed when making their chosen outcomes.
The department consists of modern Food Preparation and Nutrition rooms, four well equipped multi-media workshops, and two Textiles rooms. We encourage pupils to make use of all facilities on offer, including the laser cutter and 3D printer.
