Design & Technology

For IB you can choose to study either Design Technology or Visual Arts (Textiles).  Both subjects can be taken at Higher and Standard Level.

Design Technology explores all aspects of the design cycle from the process of generating ideas, looking at innovation and entrepreneurship, through to the selection of materials, to the end product. As an experimental science subject, there is an emphasis on knowledge and understanding but, wherever we can, we introduce smallscale practical assignments.

Visual Arts (Textiles) involves researching designers, both contemporary and historical, and developing techniques from around the world to express yourself by producing your own pieces of textile art, accessories and installations.
