Sixth Form Design And Technology
Head of Department - Mr D Currigan
All the man-made objects around you – furniture, cars, stationery, clothes, computers – have been designed. Good design allied to successful technology creates commercially successful products. Life in the modern world revolves around such products.
The A Level in Design and Technology involves coursework assessment as well as written examinations. The work is practical in nature, although it may be computer or graphically orientated, and gives considerable opportunity for students to use their own creative initiative.
Students are encouraged to work independently in developing, planning and making products that satisfy real needs. Over the period of the course, candidates will be expected to complete design and manufacturing tasks and will be provided with the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding of materials, processes and product design. An extensive range of resources is made available to students in the Design and Technology Department.
Design and Technology is designed to be a complementary study to subjects such as Mathematics, Physics, Art and Photography or act as a supporting subject with English, History, Geography and Modern Languages.
Typical higher education destinations for students who have followed a Design and Technology course include Engineering, Product Design, Graphic Design and Architecture.
