Design Technology Aims and Philosophy

At Greenhill School, Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils investigate, design and manufacture products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Pupils acquire a broad range of cross curricular subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, ICT/CAD and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, pupils develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.

The Technology Department consists of a range of purpose built rooms which include two multi material workshops, two food technology rooms, a textiles workshop and an ICT CAD/CAM suite with laser cutter, 3D plotter and  sublimation plotter.
