“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” –Steve Jobs

Swindon is a town that has thrived as a result of engineering - from the railways to modern times, when Honda and Dyson have become key employers. Through our D.T curriculum, we aim to equip our pupils with the skills required to follow a design project through from its concecption to evaluation.  We develop the skills as the pupils move through the school, building on the earliest foundations that are developed through play during the Early Years curriculum.        

What do our pupils think?

"DT is really cool because you get to see your designs come to life!"

"I like learning about DT because we get to make lots of things. Sometimes it's a bit tricky when we get to use new tools"

"When you are doing DT, you have to look at lots of different ways of making things first, so that your design is the best it can be"

"I like being able to take things home to show my family"

What does DT lead to?

Supporting your childs' interest in DT can lead to a variety of careers, including:

  • CAD technician
  • Clothing/textile technologist
  • Colour technologist
  • Exhibition designer
  • Furniture designer
  • Interior and spatial designer
  • Product designer

STEM club

We have a thriving STEM club after school once a week.  During this session, pupils have opportunities to develop their skills in a less formal environment and with pupils of different ages.
