Departmental Curriculum

All pupils in Years 7 and 8 study both Design Technology and Food Preparation for one period a week, for two terms. Throughout Year 7 we discover Design and Technology and Food Preparation in a practical way. We learn how to work safely and independently within both a workshop and a kitchen whilst making products by manipulating a range of materials. We experiment with a wide range of processes and use equipment, hand tools and machines to help with manufacturing. In Year 8 we build on these skills to make more complex products in preparation for GCSE and BTEC options in these subjects. Pupils have a choice of opting for GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition or BTEC Engineering if they want to continue their studies in this curriculum area. The department is based in a recently renovated area of the school and pupils have the opportunity to use a range of tools and equipment.
