Design and Technology at Notre Dame aims to ensure that all pupils are given the chance to work with a wide range of materials and ingredients whilst designing and making for the world we live in. Pupils are challenged to solve problems and become independent and creative learners.
At Key stage 3, Design and Technology is taught on a rotation throughout the year. Each pupil will spend 12 weeks in Product Design, 12 weeks in Textiles and 12 weeks in Food.
Pupils may opt to further their studies within DT at key stage 4. Options currently available are GCSE Design technology and Level 1/2 Hospitality and catering.
