Creative Technology

“Enjoy failure and learn from it. You can never learn from success” 

Sir James Dyson

Curriculum Intent

Our creative technology curriculum is a broad practical based subject. Using creativity and imagination, students design and make products skillfully and safely 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, nutrition, computing and art. Students learn how to take risks, becoming 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.
