Curriculum: Design Technology Key Stage 3

At Key Stage 3, students will study the following aspects of Design Technology:

  • Graphic Design
  • 3D Design and Resistant Materials
  • Food Technology
  • Textiles

Creativity is encouraged and within this, there is also a strong emphasis on traditional making, engineering and craft techniques, which ensures students have a broad skills base to take into Key Stage 4.

The department is supported with leading edge technology, which allows students to build Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) into their work. This gives them a sense of what it really is like to design and manufacture their own product and be able to evaluate each step of the process.
