Design and Technology

Why is Design and Technology important?

At Copthorne we believe in providing opportunities for children to develop whatever their capabilities. In Design and Technology we aim to combine their design and making skills with knowledge and understanding allowing each individual to create quality products.

Our projects focus on developing practical skills, that are essential for everyday life, in a fun and exciting way using a variety of materials and equipment.

Design and Technology at Copthorne allows children of all capabilities to design and construct ‘something’ for ‘somebody’ for ‘some purpose’. It won’t always be a great success, sometimes it may even be a great disaster but we can guarantee it will be great fun!

We are expanding to GCSE!

Parents have told us they need a quality senior school alternative, so from September 2021, pupils already at Copthorne or joining in Year 7 will be able to stay with us to Year 11. Our first GCSE exams will take place in 2026. 

Join us at our next Virtual Open Morning or read about our expansion to find out more.
