Itchen Abbas is a rural village on the River Itchen about 4 miles north of Winchester. Within the area Itchen Abbas and other villages close to the main city of Winchester there a few local artists who exhibit around the area like Hampshire Open Studios with a range of artistry available. These range from painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass, furniture and even jewellery.

At Itchen Abbas we want to build a Design and Technology curriculum which is inspiring and practical. We want all children to use their creativity and imagination to design and make products and become problem solvers who can work creatively on a shared project. We want children to acquire appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as in the National Curriculum. Children will be exposed to a wide range of media including textiles, food and woodwork; through this, children will develop their skills, vocabulary and resilience. It is our aim to link Design Technology to other subjects such as topic. We want Design Technology to prepare our children, to give them the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences to succeed in later life after they leave school.
