At Eagle House Design Technology is taught throughout the school, with all boys and girls enjoying an hour long period of this practical subject. Classes are split in half so group sizes are on average 7 pupils. Whilst one group has Design the other group has either Textiles, Food Technology or Coding and they stay with this subject for half of the term.
Design Technology is housed in a spacious department offering the children the latest machinery. The department is set into three areas, a workshop, design studio and our own computer area.
The children use some of the most up to date machinery, such as our laser cutter or 3D printer. As well as this we are making sure pupils still have a good understanding of the traditional and basic techniques in the subject.
The nature of work covered at Eagle House is broad but centres around the philosophy of industrial and product design. We encourage the pupils to develop and design their own work within a fixed project title.
