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.

In design and technology, students learn powerful knowledge about materials, techniques, contexts and design principles, as well as skills and knowledge of recipes, nutrition and diet for the food strand. At KS4 we offer GCSE Design Technology and Level 1/2 Hospitality and Catering, allowing students to pursue either strand to a higher level. Exam boards: Hospitality and Catering - EDUQAS; Design Technology - AQA
