Studying Technology and Design provides opportunities to tackle and resolve design and technological problems to meet human needs within a range of contexts, such as home, school, leisure, community, business and industry. Essentially, we are searching for better ways to do things, inventing solutions and taking risks.

KS3 Curriculum (Years 8, 9 and 10)

 

The central focus of technology and design at Key Stage 3 is the design and manufacture of products which require the use of energy to make them function. The programme of study is designed to enable pupils to acquire knowledge, understanding and skills which can be used in the design and manufacture of products which are meaningful to them. Technology and design is essentially a practical subject, therefore, it is anticipated that most learning will take place within the context of practical designing and manufacturing.
