Engineering, Design and Technology

We have a clear vision for our students in the Engineering, Design and Technology department; 

Imagination Innovation Independence

Imagination:

We want our students to be creative, be able to respond to and identify problems in different ways.

Innovation;

We want our students to learn about new and existing technologies, how they affect our world and how they can be used. We can use inspiration from the past and present to create our future.

Independence;

We want our students to be able to think as individuals, to question the norm and question direction. We also want them to be able to personalise their learning; to take on their own design challenges; to manage themselves and others to achieve success.

About our curriculum:

To achieve our aims we are on a journey to create a broad and vibrant curriculum from KS3 to KS5 so that our students can learn about subjects they find interesting and relevant to their future aspirations.

In KS3 students rotate around material areas including resistant materials (woods, metals and plastics) electronics, food technology, textiles and graphics. Students learn through projects where they have the opportunity to design and make products for a range of people and a range of situations.

In KS4 our students have a choice of Food Prep and Nutrition GCSE, Child development GCSE, Resistant materials GCSE and Electronic Products GCSE.

In the 6th form we offer 2 courses. Students can study A Level Product design and/or BTEC Engineering. Both courses can lead to a variety of careers and further education courses including university and apprenticeships.

Our teachers:

J Allsopp - Head of EDT, specialist in design technology and Product design

I Gimour - Specialist in Engineering, Electronics and Product Design.

J Cooper - Teacher of Food Prep and Nutrition and Child Development

C Rowan - Teacher of Textiles and Enrichment

J Baldwin -Teacher of Resistant materials, Product Design and Engineering

C Blandford - Teacher of Engineering and EDT technician
