The vision and aim of our Design Faculty is ‘to inspire pupils through rigorous design and make activities that encourage the pupils to use their imagination and creativity. Solving real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.’
We strive to create the designers, inventors and artists of the future. We ask pupils to reflect on society's current and future needs and answer the question, how can we make a better future for all through design? We ask pupils to come up with creative and experimental ways of solving problems, using a variety of different materials and processes, and to evaluate and reflect on how their work meets the needs of the modern world. We are engaged in community projects and extracurricular activities which challenge pupils to go further than classroom learning to make an impact on the local community.
