Design & Technology
In Design and Technology we strive to create an environment where students are able to combine creative thinking with technological and practical skills to design and make products that meet human needs. They learn to use current technologies and to consider the impact of future technological developments.
GCSE Design and Technology will prepare students to participate confidently and successfully in an increasingly technological world. Students will gain awareness and learn from wider influences on Design and Technology including historical, social, cultural, environmental and economic factors. Students will get the opportunity to work creatively when designing and making and apply technical and practical expertise.
Our GCSE allows students to study core technical and designing and making principles, including a broad range of design processes, materials techniques and equipment. They will also have the opportunity to study specialist technical principles in greater depth.
