Design Technology

We love Design Technology because it is the subject that opens career doors – from engineering to fashion and product design. Makers, inventors, and problem solvers all need foundations to set them on their way. Design Technology has both theoretical and practical elements that allow children to flourish, regardless of their academic ability. From an early age, many children are fascinated with how objects are put together and how things work. It is an opportunity for children of all ages to learn through ‘play’. Design Technology equips the children with the skills needed later in life and introduces new ambitions.
