Our pupils deserve a design technology curriculum which prepares them for the world they live in.  Our curriculum is broad and balanced, whilst promoting and developing resilient, independent, lifelong learners with the ability to solve problems utilising a range of transferable skills, thus allowing them to become successful and productive members of the wider community.

In design technology pupils combine practical and technological skills with creative thinking to design and make products and create systems, that meet human needs. They learn to use current technologies and consider the impact of future technological developments.  They also learn to think creatively, solving problems as individuals and members of a team.  Design technology is a subject that is challenging but, develops and implements a range of different disciplines including mathematics, science, engineering, computing, geography, business studies and art, making it accessible for all.

Design technology education makes a unique and invaluable contribution to pupils’ lives and equips pupils not only for public exams, but for their life beyond Holy Cross.

“Genius? No- we just worked harder.”
