Our Intent:

In Design Technology at Central Lancaster High School we teach both Design & Technology and Food Technology. We see both subjects as essential in creating capable, well-rounded individuals and developing those life skills needed beyond the classroom.

In both subjects' pupils develop their creativity and problem solving, using design briefs to consider the needs of individual consumers, and then creating a product or solutions to meet those needs. As well as the traditional academic skills, both subjects foster collaboration, inclusion and the hands-on technical skills required to work in engineering or a modern kitchen.
