As designers and technologists, we embrace curiosity to explore how things work and find creative solutions. At The Academy of Woodlands, we prioritise exposing children to diverse products that inspire critical thinking. They become developers, evaluators, and critics, actively engaging with prototypes to drive meaningful projects. Through hands-on learning and pupil voice, we foster skills and techniques in Design and Technology to adapt to our ever-changing technological world.

We aim to establish lasting partnerships with local organisations, enabling staff and children to collaborate with experts in their respective fields. Our goal is to nurture resilient, independent, and innovative thinkers who possess the confidence and ambition to utilise and expand upon these skills. Moreover, we ensure that children are well-informed about the wide range of career opportunities available to them, both existing and yet to be created.
