Design Technology

Design Technology

This department encompasses Resistant Materials, Systems and Control, Food, Textiles and Graphics.

Pupils undertake a balanced programme of design and technological activities working with a wide range of materials. Much of the work is skills-based, reinforced by a series of problem-solving challenges, in which pupils investigate a given brief, working through the design process, which is common to all disciplines. The aim is for pupils to combine practical and intellectual skills with an understanding of aesthetic, technical, social, economic, industrial and environmental issues.
