The DT curriculum uses Designing and Making to develop students’ creativity, confidence and skill with a range of tools, equipment and processes. Across all material areas we enjoy high quality accommodation and excellent facilities with computer aided drawing and manufacturing equipment.
We have specialist teaching staff and two department technicians who support all material areas. The department also works closely with the SEN teams and the Gifted and Talented Coordinator to ensure that all students receive appropriate support and are allowed to realise their full potential.
At Key Stage 4 students are able to study within the department. We offer GCSE Design and Technology and GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition alongside a number of Level 1 vocational qualifications.
