King Edward's School BATH

Design Technology

Design Technology at King Edward’s School is truly an independent learning environment, where pupils are encouraged to develop problem solving skills and respond to design challenges with imagination, creativity and wit. Innovation, flair and risk-taking are positively encouraged and rewarded from Year 7 up to Sixth Form level.

Our aim is to provide a wide range of opportunities which enable all pupils to have fun exploring, discovering and enjoying their innate creativity through a series of design challenges which will help to establish a firm foundation of both practical and problem-solving skills, as well as tio provide a clear understanding of what constitutes good design. At the heart of what we do lies a fundamental appreciation of the simple enjoyment of designing and making things. More than this, we believe we impart to our pupils the confidence and skills require to make a difference in their chosen career after leaving King Edward’s.

The requirement is simple. We need business people who understand creativity, who know when and how to use the specialist, and who can manage innovation: creative specialists who understand the environment in which their talents will be used and who can talk the same language as their clients and business colleagues; and the engineers and technologists who understand the design process and can talk the language of business.’
