During Key Stage 3, students study different aspects of Technology by completing stimulating modules using materials such a cardboard, woods, metals, electronics, textiles and food. The Department aims to provide a safe, challenging, working environment which encourages every child to work to the best of their ability. These subjects provide opportunities for students to develop their technical capabilities and creativity combining their designing and production skills with knowledge and understanding in order to create prototype products.
Students experience a range of learning styles and practical activities in order to become independent learners. Students gain transferable skills and keep abreast of modern technologies, manufacturing techniques and materials.
Students solve problems individually and as members of a team. They use practical and intellectual skills combined with an understanding of aesthetic, technical, cultural, social, industrial and environmental issues to design a range of products.
Through our Technology subjects, students develop confidence in using practical skills and become discriminating users of products. They apply imagination and creative thinking to make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts.
