All students in Design & Technology will be taught a challenging and enriching Key Stage 3 curriculum which encourages mastery of designing, making and cooking skills. All students will have the opportunity to design and produce products and dishes to a high standard, linking these processes and techniques to real-world contexts, careers and industries. We aim to produce knowledgeable and capable designers and makers who have the skills and enthusiasm to thrive in the Key Stage 4 Construction, Hospitality & Catering and Engineering courses.
