Design and Technology

‘There are three responses to a piece of design – Yes, no and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.’

Milton Glaser

Our Vision


Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art.


Through this exciting subject, children learn how to take risks, become resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.




There is a high degree of technical knowledge involved in Food and Design: in knowing how to use materials safely, in understanding the routines, such as measurement and design to maximise materials and effort, and in learning manual skills.  Teaching children to take a careful, informed approach is key.





We study key designers and barrier breakers across the discipline so that children can see how design is an iterative process and that fresh perspectives as well as originality have shaped the world.



Children learn to evaluate and reflect on their own work – learning from mistakes, seeing how to improve, and building their own plans.  This allows them to take on projects independently.
