Winchester has a purpose-built DT centre equipped with a comprehensive range of traditional and high-tech machinery, a graphics studio, an electronics lab and forty computers packed with professional software. 

Pupils may study Design Technology within the timetable throughout the school, beginning with an introductory course in the first year; they then take a GCSE in Design Technology (OCR) or 3D Design (AQA).  In the sixth form, pupils may opt to study for a Pre-U in Design or A Level (OCR) in DT: Design Engineering.  The curriculum caters to a broad range of design interests from architecture and product design through to engineering design and robotics.

The successful candidate is likely to be required to teach Div.
