Aims and Philosophy

In Technology we have been personalising learning for a long time; students take responsibility for their choice of practical activity, preparation and presentation. Students self and peer assess regularly which creates an effective learning commentary based on improvements and progression.

The Faculty strives to engage and motivate students in all their work. A ‘can-do, will-do’ attitude is expected which gives students the freedom to try new skills independently without being afraid to make mistakes.
