Product Design

Department Information

Students follow a variety of technology options throughout Year 7 and then have the option to continue this into Year 8 and 9. The options currently available are Food Technology, Textiles and Product Design. Currently at GCSE we offer Food Technology but are looking at expanding this in the future.

Product Design encourages students to design and make products with creativity and originality, using a range of materials such as paper and card, plastics, timber based materials, and ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Students also develop a variety of techniques for working with these materials.

In Year 7 they will complete a clock based on a design movement.

In Year 8 they will create a number of projects including earphone wraps and board games.

In Year 9 they investigate different materials to create a variety of personalised projects.
