Curriculum Overview

During Year 7 and 8, all pupils study Technology for two x 1 hour lessons per week. They experience a range of "Design & Make" activities using both resistant materials: wood, metal and plastic, and also compliant materials such as food, textiles and card. In Food Technology they follow a 'Licence to Cook' syllabus.

All Technology projects involve analysing problems and producing design solutions. These could be either models or real products. Pupils use computers, graphic and CAD/CAM software to enhance their design work and manufacture high quality products.

In year 9 Pupils start their GCSE courses in Design and Technology, and can choose a subject to specialise in from Food Technology, Product Design, Textiles and Graphic Products.
