Design and Technology

GCSE Design and Technology will prepare pupils to participate confidently and
successfully in an increasingly technological world. Pupils will gain awareness and
learn from wider influences on Design and Technology including historical, social,
cultural, environmental and economic factors.

Our GCSE requires pupils to study a wide range of material outcomes, but then gives
the opportunity to study a specialist technical principle in greater depth by choosing a
material area of expertise – these include:

  • Timbers and manufactured boards
  • Metal
  • Plastics
  • Paper and card
  • Concrete
  • Textiles

These material areas can cover a broad range of design topics such as:

  • Product designing in any material area to fulfil a contextual design challenge
  • Mini projects on jewellery making
  • Mini projects on casting and moulding in concrete.
  • Mini projects producing garments, embellishing garments and producing fabric.
  • Use of CAD/CAM equipment such as laser cutters and 3D printers.
