Technology

‘Building powerful knowledge to grow confident & creative global citizens.’

In technology we teach the knowledge and range of practical skills to enable students to look after themselves in life and become resourceful and considerate global citizens.  We teach a foundation of knowledge and understanding which enables students to design themselves and appreciate the designs of others’.  The context of these range from healthy, nutritious and tasty meals to the use of a variety of tools and techniques in the thoughtful creation of beneficial and purposeful objects. Lincoln and Lincolnshire have strong links to the food and manufacturing industries; potential career opportunities are explained alongside the moral implications of the consumption of resources on our environment.
