Best in the Country

The DT Centre at King's may not be the biggest department you have seen, but it has been voted the best in the country for four out of the past five years by 'The Good Schools Guide'. What excited them and will excite you is the standard and quality of the work that is produced by our pupils. They are actively encouraged to use their imagination and creativity when designing projects, and they work with an enormous variety of different mediums.

Cutting-Edge Technology

Cutting-Edge Technology

We have excellent equipment facilities which allow our pupils to manufacture a huge range of projects, and we are always looking to acquire new equipment and processes whenever the opportunity arises. Indeed we were one of the first schools in the South West to acquire CNC Plasma cutting facilities.

We also have an extensive suite of computers which pupils use to research, design and present their work. These in turn are linked to our CNC equipment which pupils then use to model and realise their design solutions. Although we are a forward-thinking department, we pride ourselves on maintaining traditional skills and quality making throughout our project work.

We have a number of pupils whom have been awarded the prestigious Arkwright Engineering Scholarship. In addition to this, we have had pupils be recognised for their outstanding DT work by The Sir Henry Royce Memorial Foundation - the most highly prized award given to pupils who have demonstrated a high standard of craftsmanship in their project work.
