Design, Technology and Innovation

Designing, making and evaluating

We provide a creative environment for boys and girls from Years 3-8, of all abilities. Our curriculum provides a broad and balanced variety of tasks with special attention to ‘hands on’ experience across a wide range of activities.

Our project-based approach explores designing and making, using various hand tools and machinery. We emphasise the need to be creative by responding to set design briefs, exploring the importance of developing good planning skills on paper and on computers. We also place great emphasis on thorough research, and make sure that children evaluate their work.

We also offer extra-curricular clubs throughout the year and regularly enter pupils into county-wide and local Design Technology competitions.
