Facilities

The Technology & Design Department at Campbell College has 3 design rooms and 3 workshops which are all well equipped with specialist Technology equipment. We have the benefits of  2 CAD/CAM milling machines and 1 CAD/CAM laser cutter. We are also fortunate that 2 of the design rooms have computer suites with advanced graphics capability for high quality Computer Aided Design (CAD ) work.

As well as superbly equipped facilities, Technology & Design at Campbell College also has a fantastic team of teaching and technical staff who are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and highly skilled and who seek to stretch every student and challenge them to be their best.

Ethos

We believe Technology & Design prepares our pupils to participate in tomorrow’s rapidly changing technologies. They learn to think and intervene creatively to improve their quality of life. As our students progress from Key Stage 3 through to A Level, the subject calls for them to become autonomous and creative problem solvers, as individuals and as members of a team. They must look for needs, wants and opportunities and respond to them by developing a range of ideas and manufacturing products. They combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetics, social and environmental issues, function and industrial practices. As they do so, they reflect on and evaluate present and past designs and technologies, their issues and effects. Through Technology and Design, all our students can become discriminating and informed users of products as well as becoming innovators.
