Every student during Year 7 and 8 will spend approximately one term experiencing the following design and Technology areas:
- Resistant Materials
- Graphic Design
- Food and Nutrition
- Robotics / Electronics
Students are introduced to each specialism through a small project. In each project students will experience a range of designing and making techniques, tools, materials and equipment. From these ‘taster courses’ students are offered an opportunity to continue to study one or more of the specialisms at a GCSE / Technical level.
Students are expected to bring their own ingredients for Food Technology. In all other areas of D&T students are encouraged to pay a nominal sum for their finished products.
