The D&T department offers students the opportunity to design and make their own products in a range of different materials using a variety of tools and equipment. Students study theory and develop their making skills through lots of interesting practical work. It is also an opportunity for them to apply the knowledge and techniques that they have developed in other core subjects into designing and developing practical solutions. Students analyse existing products to enhance their own designing. We are keen that students develop their ability to plan projects and present their work with clarity and impact. Our aim is that students enjoy highly productive lessons where they get to design and make quality products that they are proud to take home.
