Design Technology

Muntham House School has a large workshop for Design Technology lessons, with pupils undertaking a range of projects that encourages them to use the tools available and understand how products are made and work.

These projects can range from smaller items such as pencil boxes, wooden games, clocks, key rings, and some problem solving tasks where they learn to work as a team. Pupils have the opportunity to use their skills they have learn and build larger scale projects, these have included and petrol hovercraft, electric quad bikes, and go karts.

Year 10 and 11 pupils can take the GCSE course, and choose a larger scale design and make projects such as furniture design, metal work projects and utilize modern CAD / CAM facilities to manufacture parts for their projects to learn about industrial manufacturing.

The Design Technology Department Aims to:

  •  Teach pupils to learn to use the tools in the workshop safely.
  •  To help pupils understand the design process.
  •  To make their own designs and engage in practical tasks.
  •  To learn life skills and opportunities for potential employment.
  •  To solve problems and build their resilience.
