“Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.”

Erich Fromm (psychologist)


The Design Technology Department is an energetic and vibrant place to work and study. You will find the staff enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very helpful. They give freely of their time outside lessons to provide every opportunity to excel.

You will find that the skills you will gain are of immense value in specific university degrees such as engineering, industrial design, architecture and CGI, but also in many other areas.

Our core ambition is that you leave the department as highly skilled and creative problem solvers, who can apply an enormous range of technical expertise and design techniques to generating solutions to both physical and theoretical problems.



The Doyle School of Design Technology is an extremely well-equipped department. Facilities consist of a thoroughly modern IT studio, a graphics studio with a further IT suite, four workshops, a foundry, a design studio, an electronics/robotics lab and a CAD/CAM studio.

The CAD/CAM studio is extensively equipped and includes a CNC lathe/milling machining centre, a large CNC laser cutter, a CNC router, and a CNC plasma cutter for metals.

We look forward to welcoming you here.
