Science and Technology

Science and Technology are exciting subjects that let students investigate how things work. Our aim is to develop students’ curiosity about the world they live in, and to give them methods for investigating the world around them. In Science, students learn about key scientific concepts and in Technology, students design and build a range of exciting products in the areas of Food Technology, Product Design, Graphics and Textiles.
