Design & Technology
Every class has a generous amount of time allocated to Design Technology, during which the boys develop strong design and creative skills over a range of exciting projects. Each project focuses variously on the following areas: materials and structures, mechanisms, textiles, control and electrical systems, and consist of an investigative and evaluation stage, an opportunity to practice and a design and making assignment. Along with their three main projects, the boys also gain a sound understanding of safe workshop practice and good organisational skills.
The projects benefit from strong cross-curricular links, particularly with Science, Maths, ICT and Art. Design Technology is taught by specialist subject teachers in our Junior School DT Room and achievements in DT are celebrated with regular displays and through House competitions. There is generally a DT Club included in our clubs programme.
