Design, Innovate, Create and Evolve
Key stage 3
Within the faculty we believe that short 6 weeks projects work well for our students. Every 6 weeks our students are assessed and a new project begins. This allows our students to sample a wide range of material areas each year and therefore increase their technological understanding. The key stage 3 curriculum is progressive and therefore as the students move through the year groups they experience greater challenge whilst building upon previous knowledge and understanding.
Key stage 4
Within our faculty we believe it is important to offer our students a wide range of choices to allow them to both enjoy and succeed.
Our Key Stage 4 students are currently studying one or more of the following courses. Please note that we try to personalise the curriculum as much as possible therefore these course may change for future year groups.
