DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY
The school has a range of good facilities that enable D&T to be well developed through Key Stage 3. Pupils are able to access power tools, electronics, circuit board etching, moulding, computer controlled cutting, sewing machines, digital camera, computers and hand tools.
Our computer network is continually upgraded and has a good range of software enabling pupils to access the full KS2 & KS3 curriculum.

All pupils have dedicated ICT lessons in the main computer room. A second computer room is planned.
The music room is large and recently refurbished. A good range of musical instruments are available and all pupils are taught by a specialist music teacher. Adjacent rooms are used for visiting instrument teachers who provide lessons for pupils who have opted to learn a specific instrument. A new music computer facility has recently been added.
Our library is large, vibrant and well-stocked. The library is used for borrowing books, research and to support pupils' English lessons.
