The Workshops

The workshop complex is situated in the middle of the school site in the old stableyard and comprises of a number of workshops, offices and store areas. It benefits from a large wood shop giving the boys a chance to experience how timber can be manipulated into quality products.

There is a multimedia workshop where the boys have an opportunity to use plastics and to learn the value of modelling and testing designs before actual manufacture.

The Metal workshop is very well equipped and allows us to not only teach GCSE materials but also to run our Engineering level 2 course.

The CAD suite has recently been refurbished to allow students better access to the modern ICT that is a critical part of any modern designers’ skills.

Within the courtyard we also have the capacity for students to undertake courses run during after school curriculum time such as blacksmithing, coppersmithing, welding, engineering and wood classes.
