In KS3 students sample three/four distinct areas within the Design and Technology department, rotating at regular intervals throughout the year.
During this time students are encouraged to be open-minded, developing a wide range of skills and a sound knowledge of the topics covered.
The diverse range of activities covered enables all students to build confidence and a passion for success, and all are encouraged to consider opting to study a Design and Technology subject to GCSE level, supported in their decision making by their subject staff.
In KS4 students who have opted for a Design and Technology subject work on a series of minor projects that help to build the skills that are needed for the coursework element of the final GCSE Grade.
Specific examination preparation topics are covered throughout KS4 to prepare the students for their final examinations.
· Year 9 = GCSE Foundation (Skills and knowledge building).
· Year 10 = GCSE Focused preparation (advanced skills and knowledge building).
· Year 11 = GCSE Coursework and examination preparation.
Students on the GCSE Design & Technology course are following the AQA examination board.
