Technology / IT

Technology is a vibrant and challenging area of the curriculum, one where students can draw on their knowledge and skills gained in most other subjects. They can then apply them in a real world context through design and activity. Technology explores the design process from establishing a need and writing a brief, through to the planning and manufacturing of a tangible product. Throughout the process, students are encouraged to evaluate their own and others' work and suggest ways to improve.

Students should approach their design work with a creative mind, looking to manufacture quality products that show part of the creator's personality. Students are also led to reflect on the environmental and social impacts of their designs, considering the sustainability of the materials and ingredients they are using and how their ideas would be received by a variety of cultures.
