The department consists of the two closely related subjects of Art & Design and Design & Technology. The school has four specialist rooms that are light, spacious and fitted with new and modern equipment. The department also has access to two specialist ICT rooms. In both subjects pupils will engage in a range of activities that require them to think creatively to plan, design, make and evaluate. The department is keen to promote a caring environment where all pupils and staff feel happy and safe to work. Health and safety is regarded as being of paramount importance and the teaching and learning of this continues each year.
