Design and Technology

Design Technology Curriculum intent

‘Technology is fundamental human activity that physically intervenes in the natural and man-made world, is built on previous technologies and has implications for the future’.

Knowledge:

Our Design Technology curriculum has been designed to engageinspire and challenge our students in decision making, problem solving and marketing in selling solutions.

Strength:

The projects will equip students with the knowledge and skills from a wide range of sources including mathematics and science. The students will be involved in learning and working in a variety of domains: conceptual; technical; aesthetic; constructional; marketing; in order to design and develop technologies and products to intervene in the natural and man-made worlds.

Ambition:

Our aim is as students’ progress, they should be able to think more critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of Product Design. We want students to know how through the exploration of these concepts, they will learn about their impact on the world. By working in design and technology pupils will learn potential, valid and successful solutions to problems and therefore judgement of effectiveness.
