We believe in developing spirituality within young people through encouraging creativity and promoting self-confidence to explore new areas. It is also crucial that we play our part in developing students into responsible citizens through promoting an understanding of the importance of sustainability and the environment in designing & manufacturing products. As well as embracing new technologies.
We believe that building positive relationships with students is the key to building a fertile, creative environment and we will always strive to bridge the gap between a student’s dreams and what is realistically possible, without stifling their naturally creative instinct.
All Students follow our foundation Design & Technology course in Year 9 consisting of Design Technology and Food and Nutrition on a two-weekly timetable. Students then can continue their studies by opting from a suite of GCSE courses in Design Technology or Food and Nutrition. For students who wish to continue their studies but prefer a vocational course we offer BTECs in Engineering.
At key stage 5 students have an opportunity to study A level Three-Dimensional Design in our Sixth Form. They also can study a Level 3 Applied Diploma in Food Science and Nutrition.
The faculty is in purpose-built accommodation which includes specialist facilities for Food and Nutrition as well as, Design Technology and Engineering workshops.
The curriculum is delivered by a dedicated team of specialist teachers.
