The members of the Design and Technology team are committed to the education of all students. We will aim to:

  • Develop skills for life and give the students the confidence to be the best they can be.
  • Deliver a clear understanding of Design and Technology in the wider context of the college, the community and enterprise.
  • Create a stimulating learning environment which will encourage creativity and innovation.
  • Encourage students to use their Design and Technology capabilities across other areas of the curriculum.
  • Promote independent learning along with the value of being a team member.

In terms of development of both staff and students our aim is that:

  • All students will achieve the best possible qualification.
  • Students will gain a better understanding of Design and Technology in KS3 so that the transition into KS4 will run smoothly.
  • A common monitoring and assessment strategy is followed so that all areas are promoting continuity and students are able to track their own progress.
