Teaching and Learning at Key Stage 3
Technology is one of the areas that can directly affect the quality of life of a student. Students undertake projects that seek to improve artefacts, systems or environments for others or themselves.
Understanding of healthy life styles and healthy diet is the main focus of the food course and students learn how to write healthy menus and cook healthy meals.
Teaching and Learning at Key Stage 4
The Technology department offers four GCSEs starting in Year Nine; these are Food Technology, Graphic Products, Textile Products and Resistant Materials.
The Technology department aims to prepare pupils to participate in tomorrow's rapidly changing technologies. Pupils are encouraged to become independent learners and become discriminating and informed users of products.
The nature of project work in all four subjects allows the same brief to be interpreted in a wide variety of ways depending upon the identified needs and the response and experience of the problem solver.
