Our Tech and Specs curriculum area comprises the subjects of Computing and Design Technology.

Understanding Britain’s part in the development of our modern world is of equal importance to understanding the responsibility that this brings.  We develop the children’s resilience to investigations, exploring new ideas and working cooperatively to produce quality outcomes which have a purpose.
