Design & Technology

Our D&T curriculum aims to help students to have a growing awareness of the world around them and be capable of informing that awareness independently. We want students to be inspired by the thought that they can conceive ideas that improve peoples’ lives. Through learning and practice, we want students to be able to design and produce creative, considerate and beneficial solutions. As they work we aim to develop their enjoyment and pride in the process and product of designing and making activity, whilst at school and beyond. As we look at the variety of work and industries, we will signpost careers specific to D&T and the skills that are transferable to many others.

在7年级健康和安全和实用技能的情况下显而易见,该主题很快扩大并加深,包括以实际方法解决问题所需的技能 - 研究 - 设计 - 评估 - 而且他们正在忙于解决问题和完成问题任务是主体知识 - 材料的恒定“滴水饲料”及其物业 - 生产技术 - 环境和社会影响 - 他人的工作 - 在设计和制作中使用数学,科学和信息通信技术。

As KS3 comes to an end, the skills and knowledge necessary for the GCSE D&T courses come to the fore – analysing contexts – iterative design techniques – objective evaluation. KS3 projects include designing and making soft toy monsters, habitats for insects in urban locations and recipes that are ‘Fast and Fresh!’.



All 3 courses extend the KS3 D&T experience and develop the student’s ability to independently find and solve problems using an ever wider range of equipment and techniques within the specialist areas, with the chance to practice and hone these skills to a higher level of accuracy and precision. In Year 11 students are required to respond to a context set by the exam board and the subsequent projects produced should demonstrate the student’s own independent research and direction of interest within that context. Titles have included – ‘Providing a safe and comfortable home’, ‘Working towards a sustainable future’, ‘A range of dishes that meet the dietary needs of an individual with Type 2 diabetes’ and ‘Investigate the functional properties of chemical raising agents in baked dishes eg biscuits, cakes and scones’.
