The Key Stage 3 curriculum is specially designed to give our students a broad and balanced experience and prepare them for the rigors of our GCSE course. In Year 7 students are offered experiences in a wide range of materials and techniques, including Computer Aided Design, Graphic Design, working with various materials including woods, metals and plastics to create three dimensional products. Students are split into mixed ability groups and attend lessons on a rotation system shared with Food Technology.
We ask parents for a small cash contribution at the start of year 7 which pays for student’s folders, books, materials and all practical work for years 7 and 8. At the end of each project, students will be able to take their work home and use them in the manner that was intended.
