Design & Technology
Head of Faculty - Mrs B Lewis
Within Design and Technology we aim to engage students in the design process which includes; analysis, problem solving, evaluating and the production of high quality outcomes through imaginative teaching and learning that encompasses both new technologies as well as established processes.
Most importantly all students are encouraged and supported to think creatively within an innovative, safe and positive environment to secure their subject knowledge and underpin their understanding.
At KS3 students will rotate topic every seven weeks enabling them to experience Food, Textiles, Resistant Materials and Graphics in preparation for their option choices at KS4. An Innovation project is also taught to each year group embedding the concept of the iterative design process.
The Faculty offers GCSE Design and Technology and GCSE Food Preparation & Nutrition in KS4 for Years 10 and 11. At KS5 students can opt for A-Level Product Design, A-Level Fashion and Textiles as part of their sixth form studies and Level 3 Diploma in Food Science & Nutrition
