All students in Year 7, 8 & 9 cover each area of the Design Technology syllabus on a 10 week cycle. This allows them to experience practical work in each of the main focus areas – Food Technology, Textile Technology, Resistant Materials and Systems & Control
During each module students will cover basic safety in the classroom and workshop and experience a full design and make project. This will follow the design process from analysing existing products, creating original design ideas, learning & developing practical skills using appropriate tools and equipment and evaluating their ideas. It is a practical based course which will enable each student to develop independence, self confidence and encourage creativity whilst making quality products to take home.
At Year 10 students are able to follow their studies to GCSE level in Food Technology, Textile Technology, Resistant Materials, Graphics or Catering. Some courses are also available at As and A2 level.
