Art Design and Technology
Art, Design and Technology at Rainhill High School allows the pupils to explore Technology beyond the National Curriculum and build the next generation of engineers, creators and designers. The students will acquire the necessary skills to operate fully as industry experts and have an innate passion to always ask why.
The diversity of our project work prepares and equips all pupils to embody British values and the role of design technology to ultimately develop a forward-thinking, skilled and professional workforce for the future. Pupils at Rainhill High School are encouraged to partake in a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities to enable the students to become familiar with a variety of contexts and place greater value on the place of Technology in their lives and in the wider world.
In the department, the pupils thrive from a positive culture and climate, which enables skilful delegation and the ability to play to the strengths of all pupils.
We promote a positive, yet challenging climate where pupils are encouraged and supported to take risks and have high expectations that are clearly modelled by our experienced staff then having the recognition for doing so.
