As a subject, Design and Technology combines skills, knowledge, concepts and values to enable students to tackle real problems. It can improve analysis, problem solving, practical capability and evaluation skills.

Through a variety of creative and practical activities, pupils are taught the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in a process of designing and making. They work in a range of contexts through our topic-based approach which allows for cross curricular links to be made.

Through the study of DT pupils acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education is an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.
