‘Designed in Britain. Made in Britain’

At Cheam, we firmly believe that Design, Technology and Engineering is critical to the UK’s future success and we have made significant investment to create an outstanding facility with ‘state of the art’ resources. The department boasts an outstanding multi material workshop as well as its own IT centre equipped with superb computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) facilities.

Pupils from Year Three to Year Eight study Design, Technology and Engineering for two lessons a week and follow a structured scheme of work. In Years Six and Seven, pupils are assessed for their ability and potential in the subject and if successful, they are invited to join a 'Scholarship Group'.

We understand that Design, Technology & Engineering is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject where pupils use imagination and creativity to solve real and relevant problems. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw upon disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering and computing.

In Design, Technology and Engineering, pupils learn how to take risks. They are given opportunities to become resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.  They develop essential skills such as resilience, teamwork and independence, skills that are highly valued in both their next phases of education and for future employment.
