Why study Technology?
Technology builds on students’ practical skills with an emphasis on the design process. Students look at brief development, planning, preparation, research, outcome and evaluation. Technology enables students to develop their communication, research and modelling skills in order to design unique products to meet their own brief, and the needs of their stakeholders.
Students choose to study from the following areas of Technology: Fabric, Food, Digital, Hard Materials, Design and Visual Communication.
