Design & Technology

Mission Statement


In Design and Technology, pupils combine practical and

technology skills with creative thinking to design and make

products that meet human needs.

Students will learn to think creatively and intervene to

improve the quality of life, solving problems as individuals

and members of a team.

Working in stimulating contexts that provide a range of

opportunities and draw on the local ethos, community and

wider world, the pupils will learn to identify needs and

opportunities. They combine practical and intellectual skills

with an understanding of aesthetic, technical, cultural,

health, social, emotional, economic, industrial and

environmental issues.

As they do so they evaluate present and past

Design and Technology, and its uses and effects.


At Bassingbourn Village College,

in Design and Technology, pupils develop

confidence in using practical skills and become

discriminating users of products.

They apply their creative thinking and learn to innovate.
