A Brief Introduction to the Technology Department


The Design and Technology suite comprises of two catering rooms, one graphics studio & a resistant materials workshop. A wood preparation area also houses wood sawing machines and material storage space.

KS3 - Years 7 & 8 have 4 hours of technology per fortnight, with two hours each week being assigned to either food technology, or design technology.

Students will learn several subject specific disciplines across both areas including: analysing the work of designers, designing to meet customer needs, manufacturing quality products, using tools & equipment safely & effectively, practical cooking skills, weighing & measuring commodities & the importance of good nutrition.

Students will cook a variety of sweet & savoury dishes that will develop & build their practical cooking skills week upon week. Students will also hopefully broaden their own culinary horizons by challenging their own pre-existing tastes & trying new foods.

The ingredients lists for both year 7 & 8 can be found at the bottom of this page.
