Design Technology

Design and Technology is a fascinating, rewarding and increasingly important subject in the modern world. The D&T Department at Hampton promotes innovation, resourcefulness and independent learning, encouraging each pupil to reach his full potential through individual design and project work.

The study of Design and Technology hones skills such as manufacturing, lateral thinking, project management and planning; skills that prove invaluable in all walks of life, both in academia and beyond.

Hampton’s Design and Technology pupils produce exceptional work and are regularly recognised in national competitions. In recent years several Hamptonians have won highly prestigious Arkwright Scholarships designed to nurture future leaders in Engineering and Technical Design.

  • To promote the practical, investigative and creative skills required to understand and contribute to our technological world.
  • To nurture design, research and manufacturing skills.


Taught by five full time teaching staff with the assistance of two technicians, Hampton boasts superb Design and Technology facilities in a suite of purpose built classrooms and design areas.

Open to boys in the First to Third Year, this very popular club is going from strength-to-strength and allows boys to pursue their interest in Design and Technology and hone their practical skills using our fully equipped workshops or CAD/CAM equipment. Recent projects include solar powered lamps, pewter casting and photo frames.

The department also runs a Model Aviation Club, which offers boys in the Third and Fourth Year the opportunity to make and fly their own model aircraft and drones.
