“Design and Technology is about providing opportunities for pupils to develop their capability, combining their creative, designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding in order to develop their ability to create quality products.  It gives the opportunity to put skills that students have learnt and knowledge that they have acquired from across the curriculum into a real life, practical situation. These skills will be invaluable to students both in and out of the school environment.”

Mrs H O'Connor
