At St. Andrew’s we are passionate about making Design Technology as engaging and as creative as possible. We are committed to nurturing our future designers, engineers, inventors and chefs. This year we are focussing on child-led learning, encouraging our students to take the lead across the Research-Design-Make-Evaluate design process. We hope to further inspire children by giving real-life design problems and exploring the work of famous British designers and inventors.

We will

  • Provide children with rich opportunities to develop their creative, technical and practical expertise through cross-curricular teaching.
  • Provide opportunities to build and apply their knowledge, understanding and skill to make high-quality prototypes and products.
  • Provide opportunities for children to critique, evaluate and test their ideas.
  • Provide children with opportunity to learn how to cook and learn about nutrition.
