Design & Technology

Across the School, Design Technology teaches pupils to be creative, independent and enthusiastic about problem solving. It allows them to work on a wide range of projects, learning a variety of techniques for cutting and joining, measuring and marking, and fixing and finishing different materials.

They also evaluate existing products, and design, test and evaluate their own work.

At Heathfield, we are fortunate enough to have a large and well-resourced Design Technology Lab allowing the pupils the space to be creative without working in the constraints of a classroom.

Whether they are looking forward to a career in engineering or simply doing a little DIY around the house, we are happy that, by Year 6, our pupils will have developed a number of practical skills and be confident in using a small range of tools effectively and safely, with the majority hungry to learn more.
