Wyedean School and Sixth Form Centre

Design and Technology

In KS3 we aim to build practical ability, equipping students with the skills to use a wide range of materials and processes in both every day and project based contexts.

Students will learn to solve problems using research and experience to inform their ideas.  They will become practiced in communicating these skills by drawing and modelling.


In KS 4 and 5 we aim to develop creativity and problem solving skills through designing and making products for specific users.   


We hope to enable all of our students to become resourceful and innovative and to gain an understanding of how design can improve the lives of others and our environment.


We aim to equip learners with the knowledge and skills to make decisions about how products should be made in a modern and changing world.
