The department consists of 10 workshops/design rooms including a CAD/CAM/ICT suite. In addition we have technical support from a full- time technician.
NT Design Technology offers Resistant Material, Textiles, Graphics, Construction, Food Technology and Catering. Subjects prove popular with students and experienced lead teachers aim to maximise the experience of each area.
The aim of the department is that all pupils should gain a positive and first- hand practical experience of designing and making products that fill a need. Pupils are encouraged to problem solve and make informed decisions about aspects of the future environment and be able to contribute to becoming able and informed citizens.
