Design and Technology

Welcome to the Design & Technology Department

A Department in which pupils combine practical and technological skills with creative thinking, to design and make products and systems that meet human needs.

Our aims are for all students within our Department to become:

  • Successful learners who enjoy learning, work safely, make progress and achieve.
  • Confident individuals who are able to apply their learning into solving problems as well as in their everyday lives.

We encourage students to be aware of the impact of Technology on society, and hopefully become more responsible citizens, within their consumer choices and contribution to society.

Harriet Helm,   Head of Department for D&T
