Design and Technology
The Technology Department is a modern, forward thinking department that engages students with a variety of different learning opportunities. Our students gain knowledge, understanding and practical experiences with modern design and manufacturing techniques. They develop links between design, technology and science through robotics, electronics and extracurricular STEM based projects.
The department has very well equipped classrooms including a Robotics Laboratory that allows students to study design, manufacture and programme their own devices such as robots and drones.
