Technology

The Technology & Design team work together to provide an enjoyable and productive learning and teaching environment that allows all pupils from Year 8 through to Year 14 to engage in design and make activities during and after the normal daily timetabled framework.
 
Pupils enjoy the creative and fun experiences fostered within the T&D department and all teaching and technical staff are committed to providing each young person with the mental ‘tool kit’ required to achieve their full potential.
 
The courses offered at Key Stages 4 and 5 are wide and varied and offer our young people academic and vocational examination options (see list below).
 
The T&D staff pride themselves in having helped with the successes of our pupils past and present and we endeavour to continue to be a positive influence in our young peoples lives.
