Design and Technology

The school has invested in a lot of new technology and now have a well-equipped workshop that allows the students to experience a variety of CAD/CAM systems and also hand making techniques. The main emphasis is on product design in resistant materials and textiles. In years 7 year 8 the students follow the IMYC starting with a big Idea. The students follow the design cycle to produce products from cookie cutters and clocks to bags and soft toys. In year 9 they also follow the design cycle but for problems of their own choosing. This enables them to experience real world problem solving.
