Design and Technology

In Design and Technology students will investigate the design and making of products using a range of materials such as wood, metals and plastics.

Students will be encouraged to incorporate new technologies in the production of their products. Students undertake a range of mini projects to link with the theory side of the course.  Along the way students will learn about different design movements as well as famous designers and how to take inspiration from their work.  At the end of the first-year students begin their controlled assessment portfolio based on a design brief set by the exam board.
