Design and Technology

A year 11 student's jig for bending plywood for his GCSE controlled assessment product.

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity, technical understanding and imagination, pupils design and make products using a wide range of materials, tools, processes and industrial practices. Pupils learn to solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. Pupils consider their own and others’ needs, wants and values.

The high-quality and exciting design and technology education delivered at Coombe Boys’ School ensures pupils are challenged into developing solutions using the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in an iterative process of designing, making and evaluating.
