- Head of department: Mr A Seadon
The Design Technology department wants students to experience real world situations and explore why products are designed and made. We live in a modern and complex society, and it’s our job to give some of the knowledge and experience you will need when you enter it as an adult.

In years 7, 8 and 9 students complete a carousel of each Technology discipline. They will be taught about woods, metals, plastics, paper based materials and cooking and nutrition. They will be taught the principles of design and how modern designers and manufacturers use this to produce products that we all use today. Practical activities are completed in each subject and are integral to a well-rounded design and technology education. Students will be assessed on different aspects of the Design Technology curriculum throughout the year and these form the basis of Progress Reports, so parents and students can monitor their attainment.
