Statement of Intent

Food and Nutrition

To equip pupils with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to cook and apply the principles of food science, nutrition and healthy eating.

Design Technology

To develop the power of creativity through the process of investigation, analysis, designing, making and evaluation.

Technology Curriculum

Our Technology curriculum is designed to be inspiring, rigorous and practical. Using creativity and imagination, students design and make products 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, 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. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation. The curriculum is also designed to teach acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
