The goal of the Technology Department (TD) is for every pupil to fully develop their practical skills and knowledge relating to Technology. The subject is taught through a range of practical activities and projects, each with their own learning intentions. TD is further developed with graphical tasks and the inclusion of related knowledge (theory).

"The teacher is very supportive and makes TD fun - I can have a laugh with him yet make so much progress."

"Technology and Design allows you to show off your creativity and make exciting projects"

"I love TD because we get to make so many fun projects using a wide variety of equipment and machinery."
