We emphasize the importance of responsible and sustainable design. Our pupils learn to consider the environmental and ethical implications of their creations, instilling a sense of social responsibility and ecological awareness.

Throughout their journey in Design Technology, pupils will tackle various challenges, developing a wide range of knowledge and skills from woodworking and textiles to electrical systems and digital design. They will learn to work collaboratively, effectively communicate their ideas, and adapt to new and evolving problems.

Ultimately, our Design Technology curriculum prepares pupils to be creative, forward-thinking problem solvers who can navigate the world with an understanding of how design and technology shape our lives. Our pupils will be equipped with the skills, knowledge, and values to excel in an ever-changing and interrelated world.
