Welcome to Design Technology

Welcome to the DT Department at Reading Blue Coat!

The Design and Technology Department is fortunate enough to benefit from four modern, built-to-purpose teaching spaces, as well as an exclusive DT Library. Teaching spaces are kitted out with 3D printers, laser cutters and more. In their journey through their Design careers at Blue Coat, more and more equipment becomes available to pupils as their knowledge of health and safety advances.
