Technology and Design


The aim of the Technology and Design department at Kilkeel High School is to offer equal opportunities to all students. We realise this by offering a broad balanced curricululum, allowing all students  to achieve their maximum potential.

We strive to stimulate a lasting interest in learning through problem solving and technological activities and we attempt to help students develop their imaginations, sensitivity and creative responses to a wide range of aesthetic experiences.

Technology has an important role to play in helping all students  acquire the knowledge and skills that will be needed for them to take an active role in their future careers.

The study of Technology fosters a wide range of desirable qualities, which we value. Pupils need to cooperate with one another and have a responsible attitude towards health and safety.They should develop lively enquiring minds, the ability to question and argue rationally and to apply themselves to tasks and physical skills, both on their own and in groups.

 As a department we promote high standards of academic achievement through designing, making and evaluating results. We work together as an enthusiastic team and promote an environment where all students develop personal responsibility and self-motivation but consider the needs and achievements of others.
