Students are introduced to Design & Technology with a variety of projects which enable them to develop a wide range of understanding, skills and processes. From their very first lesson we want to inspire them to create, explore and analyse. Confidence in the workshop is crucial and under close supervision they use tools and equipment which are more than likely very new to them right from the very start of their time here. This approach engages students from the outset and builds their confidence in using small hand tools right though to large pieces of machinery. They are familiarised with the design process through design and make projects and focused practical tasks. Skills of enquiry are developed as along with design and communication skills.
