Primary Design Technology

Design and Technology is about providing opportunity for children to use creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, considering their own and others’ needs.


Design Technology forms part of our Enrichment offer.

George Mitchell Secondary Phase has an extremely well equipped Design Technology workshop and partnership with our Secondary Phase offers our children access to machinery and equipment they would not usually have available to them in a Primary School.
