Design & Technology

At Hillsborough Primary School, Design and Technology is about learning how to design and produce functional and innovative products that solve problems in real-life contexts. We believe that problem-solving and considering different solutions to a problem are skills that can be developed through Design and Technology, but which are transferable to a wide range of contexts as well.

Here at Hillsborough, we encourage children to approach design problems creatively and to use real ways of testing out their ideas in order to support critical thinking skills. Each child at Hillsborough will complete at least six Design and Technology projects throughout their journey here, building on their prior knowledge and understanding.
