Design Technology

The DT area is exceptionally well resourced, with facilities for woodwork, metalwork, and plastics.

CAD and CAM equipment is available attached to a router and laser cutting equipment and is well used by the students in making high quality products.

All students in KS2 and KS3 get the opportunity to use the DT facilities, and a number of exciting projects in plastics, wood, and metal ensure that they gain the necessary skills. At GCSE, both DT Resistant Materials and Food Technology are available to students in the option blocks. A Level Product Design is a popular choice for those students continuing into the Sixth Form.

The DT department has become well known for its electric cars, which compete in the Greenpower events at Goodwood.
