Design and Technology

Design and Technology

The Design Technology Department offer a range of subject areas using a variety of different materials.

Students experience all areas of D & T in key stage 3 and 4, these include:

  • Resistant Materials, Food Technology, Textiles and Graphic Products

In Design and Technology we teach students how to innovate and solve problems through design. We teach them practical skills in different material areas so that students have the opportunity to design their own products applying different skills and practical processes along the way.

We offer AQA GCSE courses in each of the above areas consisting of a series of design and make assignments that are used to equip the students with the skills necessary to undertake Controlled Assessment.  Controlled Assessment represents 60% of the GCSE and begins in the Summer Term of Year 10.
