Textile Design

Our Curriculum Intent

In Design and Technology, we will bring out the best by encouraging our students to be creative and bold within a nurturing environment while emphasising communication and independent learning. Students will be able to respond to a brief and develop problem-solving skills through design tasks and practical tasks, including learning real-world applications of computing, engineering, CAD, CAM, 3D printing, robotics, nutrition, materials, and textiles technology.
We make sure students leave us with a real insight into how to apply the skills learnt in the classroom to a future career.
