school boys in arts and crafts class

Art & Design Technology

Design Technology

From Year 4, design technology is taught in a purpose built workshop which is equipped with state of the art equipment including a laser cutter, milling machine and 3D printer.  The subject requires boys to creatively apply knowledge and skills to solve practical problems. They then use this knowledge and understanding to devise a method or solution, realise that in a practical manner, and evaluate the end product and the steps during the process.


Art is an important part of the school experience at The Mall.  From the moment your son joins the school, he will take part in a range of creative art activities. In Reception to Year 3, he’s taught art in his classroom and then from Years 4 to 6, he is taught in a purpose-built, spacious studio. There he will be taught technical and practical skills to enable him to use a wide range of materials confidently and competently, including firing his own clay works of art in our kiln.
