In Design and Technology at UVHS we aim to provide an enjoyable experience for all students where everyone has the opportunity to develop their designing and making skills to produce high quality products across all areas of the subject . We think that DT should involve rigorous, challenging and relevant work, which encourages independent analytical thinking and problem solving that will enhance skills demanded by business and industry. Students carry out focused design and practical tasks in the areas of Food, Product Design, Electronics and Textiles and have the opportunity to apply value judgements of a social, moral, economical and aesthetic nature. They learn a range of communication, including verbal, graphical and 3d CAD modelling, which they use to design successful products. The challenges and experience gained from designing and making products are unique to this subject and we give the students an opportunity to use a range of traditional and modern manufacturing method that instil confidence and satisfaction.
We aim to give every student a positive, informative and worthwhile practical experience during their time spent in the DT faculty.
Art has been one of Man’s fundamental activities since the beginning of time and the influence of the visual arts on the modern world has never been greater. We aim instill in students an understanding and appreciation of the greatest traditions in the visual arts and how they contribute to a richer understanding of life.
“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence.” Albert Einstein
We aim to provide the opportunity for students to acquire the intellectual and practical tools to engage with and express themselves confidently in the visual arts or related professional fields. Through drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and new digital media, we aim that all our students will find a ‘voice’, and some will take the opportunity to become influential artists and designers of the future.
“Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.” Bertolt Brecht
