Design Technology

We aim to develop creative thinkers and confident designer-makers. Our teaching engages students in practical projects that require them to problem solve.

We look to future technology and trends for inspiration when delivering projects and maintain links with industry to stay up-to-date.

 

Facilities

We have 6 specialist classrooms and workshops. Two Food Technology rooms, two Workshops and a Textiles and Graphics classroom. In all rooms there is space for both practical and theory work. We also have a CAD/CAM suite with a laser cutter and router available for student use. There is a large break out space and laptops which can be used in any of the classrooms.

 

 

Curriculum

At Key Stage Three, students have the opportunity to experience working in all material areas.
At Key Stage Four, students can choose to study AQA GCSE Design and Technology and/or Eduqas GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition.
