Design Technology

 Overview

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, computing and art. 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. Design and technology at key stage 3 is taught on a rotation basis and consists of 3 areas; Product Design, Food Technology and Graphics. Students are given the opportunity to explore and experiment with different ideas, materials, technologies and techniques as they progress through the exciting and innovative units of work in each subject.
