Design & Technology

Mrs N Eastwood - Head of Department

Welcome to the Design and Technology Department


Subject Overview

For Design and Technology lessons in Years 7-9, pupils are placed in a group that is smaller than the average teaching group in other subjects, with approximately 20 students. Each group then carousels around the different areas of the subject: Food; Textiles; Design Technology (Product Design, Resistant Materials, Graphics & Electronics). This gives students an opportunity to design, make and evaluate using a variety of materials. The short projects within each area really develop their practical skills, deepen their subject knowledge and ultimately gives them a more realistic understanding of what each subject is like at GCSE level, should they choose to take it further.
