Design Technology

The newly appointed Design Technology Department is situated at the heart of the Prep, within the courtyard.

The department has been fitted with a band saw, scroll saws, pillar drills and belt sander to aid the learning journeys of children within this subject. The main focus for learning is to work with wood; joining, shaping and finishing to a high standard. The enthusiasm and quality of learning is testament to the quality teaching methods, projects and determination of the children to succeed in all areas. 

Pupils in Years 3-7 are taught at the Prep, where they build on a range of skills and learn to use workshop tools and machinery. Year 8 pupils visit the DT department at the College to develop their design skills further before stepping up to Year 9.
