Design Technology

The Design and Technology department is committed to delivering a curriculum that is accessible to all. We provide pupils with a broad range of knowledge, skills and understanding to facilitate their development into creative and innovative problem solvers. We aim to develop confident, motivated learners who understand the balance between technical practice and knowledge valued by universities and employers. The department is focused on product design with an emphasis on designing and making working items with the best use of resources. Pupils will appreciate the need to minimise waste and the importance of using sustainable materials. The team of specialist teachers is supported by technicians and benefit from the expertise of a designer in residence.  We are proud to have strong ties to the Furniture Makers' Company, continuing the school and Wycombe’s long association with this industry.
