Design & Technology

“Design and Technology is a phenomenally important subject. Logical, creative and practical, it is the only opportunity students have to apply what they learn in Maths and Science – directly preparing them for a careers in engineering, product design and manufacturing. Design and Technology appeals to the brightest of young minds.” – James Dyson

Welcome & Ethos

The Design and Technology department at Nunnery Wood High School aims to produce the technologists of tomorrow whilst achieving the highest possible standards for all students, regardless of ability or target grade. Students enjoy their work in Design and Technology and we strive to offer a diverse range of curriculum opportunities for students to experience, both in and out of the classroom.

Context of the Subject

The study of Design and Technology shows us how our world works and allows us to reflect on how the world is changing. It is like a never ending carousel, continually moving and responding to the world around it.

Design and Technology aims to produce the technologists of tomorrow. Pupils combine practical and technological skills with creative thinking to design and make interesting and innovative products. Students study how to work with a range of multimedia materials, learning about new materials and technologies and investigating practically how and why products work. We want all students to be equipped with a range of creative, practical and transferable skills along with a questioning and enquiring mind to challenge the accepted and push for innovation.
