Meet the Team

  • Ms L Haigh – Head of Science Faculty
  • Miss H Arnfield – Teacher of Design and Technology
  • Mr B Smith – Technology Technician

Technology gives young people the skills and abilities to engage positively with the designed and made world.  They learn how products and systems are designed and manufactured.

They learn how to be innovative and to make creative use of a variety of resources including traditional and digital technologies.

We provide opportunities, which allow students to develop a knowledge of a range of technology areas in KS3 including product design, textiles, graphics and Food Preparation & Nutrition through a carousel system.

As students’ progress to KS4 they may choose an area within Design & Technology to study.

Currently we offer:

GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition (EDUQAS) and GCSE Design Technology (AQA)

Food preparation and nutrition equips learners with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to cook and apply the principles of food science, nutrition and healthy eating.

GCSE Design Technology equips learners with the knowledge and understanding to Design, Make and Evaluate a range of products as well as the technical knowledge required to know how materials perform.

Both GCSE’s are 50% Final exam and 50% Non Examined Assessment.
