Design and Technology
Design and Technology is an inspiring and creative subject, whilst also being relevant and functional. Students learn to design and make products that solve genuine, relevant problems within different contexts, whilst considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. A broad range of subject knowledge is drawn from additional disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art.
For our younger dramatists, the subject enhances many desirable characteristics, such as confidence, resilience and the ability to work in a team. As they progress, the students expand their understanding of theatre by exploring the requirements needed to effectively bring a play to life.
Encouraged to express their individuality, they can use this understanding to devise their own pieces. Calling upon their newfound knowledge of established playwrights, they can then bring their own masterpieces to the stage.
