Design and Technology

GCSE Design and Technology

GCSE Design and Technology will prepare students to participate confidently and successfully in an increasingly technological world. Students will gain awareness and learn from wider influences on Design and Technology including historical, social, cultural, environmental and economic factors. Students will get the opportunity to learn about technology, work creatively when designing and making and apply technical and practical expertise.

Our GCSE allows students to study core technical, designing, and making principles, including a broad range of design processes, materials techniques and equipment. They will also study specialist technical principles relating to timber and timber-based materials in greater depth.

Achievement is assessed in equal measure by an examination focused on technical understanding and a non-examined design development task.
