Key Stage 3 – DT: Design & Technology


In Design & Technology we cover a range of projects that will equip learners with both new skills and knowledge by considering the design process. This involves producing product specifications, research methods, planning, making skills and evaluating products. 学生们 are trained in the use of both hand tools and machinery including modern day equipment such as the Laser Cutter. Projects include making a Tangram puzzle, mobile phone stand, model boat and a storage solution. The subject teaches important life skills as well as providing options for Key Stage 4 and further career choices. The subject also helps build and strengthen a student’s numeracy and literacy through all projects by linking closely to other curriculum areas.

Key Stage 4 – DT:  Design & Technology


The Key Stage 4 curriculum includes GCSE Design & Technology where students will create solutions to a wide range of initial briefs such as household devices, furniture, toys and lighting. Future careers could include design, engineering, construction, carpentry and many others related to these areas.
