Design & Technology

The overarching aim for Design Technology at Sharples School is for all learners to develop the creative, technical and practical skills needed to perform everyday tasks confidently. We want pupils to develop sufficient knowledge to enable them to design and make high quality products.

  • Make products that solve problems and demonstrate an understanding of new and emerging  technologies
  • Develop knowledge about a range of materials, processes and industrial practices
  •  Understand nutrition to enable informed meal choices
