Design, Technology & Engineering (DTE)

Felsted pupils are fortunate to have the most wonderful facilities for DTE, with a dedicated workroom in the Prep School and a specialist centre in the Senior School. This impressive area comprises of two dedicated metal and wood working rooms and two teaching rooms.

DTE is a subject which embraces thinking and communication whilst supporting the realisation of pupil’s ideas through use of materials such as wood, metal and plastics. ICT is used extensively to help students understand an industrial approach to production, and as students move their way through a range of projects including electronics, their experiences begin to allow them to design and manufacture products in a much more independent fashion.

DTE Awards and Scholarships are offered at ages 11, 13 and 16, with these students expected to demonstrate high standards of graphical communication and practical ability.

Felsted has a knack for finding one’s strengths. I always loved DT whilst at Felsted and I am now a Lighting Designer.
