Key Stage 3 Design Technology
The department offers students the opportunity to discover the pleasure and importance of designing and making, using a wide variety of resources and materials. We hope that learning will be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Some tasks will be challenging and stimulating and we aim to establish a culture of success where every student is valued for their contribution.
To enable the curriculum area to achieve its aims, it is organised into three main areas: Food and Nutrition, Textiles, and Product Design.
