Design & Technology

Design & Technology at Millfield Prep is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. 

Using creativity and imagination, pupils will design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. In doing so, they acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they also develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.

Design & Technology is taught to Years 3 and 4 on a weekly basis throughout the academic year in the technology workshops. From Year 5 upwards, pupils learn Design & Technology for two terms and Food Technology for one term, working on a rotation carousel. After school clubs are available for all ages as we look to provide opportunities for all those interested. This subject is growing at Millfield Prep with Year 9 Design and Innovation Scholarships available at Millfield and success being gained by the Year 6 Kit Car Club at the external Goblin Kit Car regional competition.

Coming up this year:

  • Dragster car design and racing using CAD/CAM technology
  • Graphic design projects
  • 3D CAD drawing experience
  • Electronic Kit Car Club
  • Year 8 Scholarship Group

Junior IPC work including Egyptians, Holidays and Making New Materials.
