Design Technology is the most recent addition to the thriving Creative Arts department at Riverston School. Design Technology is a subject where children’s capability in designing and making is developed through combining their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding. As Food Technology and Textiles are taught as separate subjects, the focus of Design Technology will be the exploration of woodwork, carpentry and other design and construction skills. At Riverston School we view Design and Technology as a subject which allows children to apply their knowledge and understanding in a creative way to design and make products. At Key Stage 4 and 5 we offer BTEC Art and Design as one of our learning pathways.
