Design Technology at St Saviour’s & St Olave’s is vibrant and well resourced. We aim to induct students into the department, gaining confidence in using tools and equipment from the very first lesson in Year 7. Students engage in projects which cover a broad range of skills and materials, develop a varied understanding of many different areas within the subject. Projects are engaging and challenging, introducing students to industrial practices and the ever-changing developments in technology.
Our aim is to develop independent and creative individuals who can go on to study GCSE’s in either Design Technology or Nutrition and Food Preparation. Beyond GCSE we run a successful A Level Product Design 3D Design course. In all Key Stages we work hard on raising awareness of social, moral and ethical issues which impact on all of us and will help us develop responsible designers and chefs who can go on to shape products, technology and materials for generations to come.
We strongly believe in creative exploration and envisage that our students will experience designers & makers from across the world, thus learning and gaining inspiration from the broad range of cultures and ideas available to better enrich their own ideas.
