Art, Design & Technology
Students follow a varied curriculum, utilising the department's resources, allowing them to experience various materials and manufacturing processes. Students are given, and respond to, design briefs covering a variety of themes and produce high quality outcomes in a mixture of materials.
Pupils work through a variety of projects developing a range of practical and communication skills. A number of design and make activities are used to build the skills of the students.
