Design & Technology and Food

We have designed our curriculum using the KS3 National Curriculum and it is delivered under the framework of the IB Middle Years programme. We have also referenced the KS2 Programmes of Study in our initial planning.

Within the Design department we strive to develop students to become independent, competent thinkers. Pupils will be provided with opportunities to be curious and communicate successfully whether this be in examinations or in response to real world situations. Design and technology intends on evolving our pupils to become product designers and/or food practitioners, encouraging problem solving, creativity and opportunities for being innovative through exploration of the design process.

We develop students life skills as well as offering opportunities for career pathways ensuring pupils leave with a wide depth of transferrable skills. Our success is measured through their portfolios and final practical outcomes.
