-Design Technology / Engineering-


We aim to ensure that learners develop technical and practical competencies as well as the wider skills valued by employers. Logical, creative and practical, it’s the main opportunity that students have to apply what they learn in maths and science – to effectively problem solve. We aim to develop students to become creative, independent and innovative learners allowing them to become self-motivated and confident. We encourage students to work independently and as part of a team, developing resilience, embracing learning found from mistakes and a readiness to take on criticism and extend communicable and applied skills that will be needed when employed.

We encourage student to contribute to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of themselves and their community, embedding citizenship in a modern technological world. To intervene creatively in their made world and to be actively involved in shaping it building economic productivity. To align DT with the need to respond to the ecological problems caused by modern mass production and consumption, a rising global population and growing energy demands.
