At Key Stage 4, pupils study the AQA Product Design specification. This course develops pupils’ practical engineering skills with challenging manufacturing tasks whilst allowing them the scope to explore wider design contexts such as engineering for the developing world or designing for people with disabilities.
Pupils can also learn AQA Food Technology. This is a course that encourages design and the development of ideas and high level skills along with a scientific understanding of the nutrition and the function of ingredients.
There are a variety of exciting extra-curricular opportunities open to young engineers in Technology. At Key Stage 3, our Electronics and Robotics, 3D Printing and Laser Cutting clubs focus on enthusing pupils about engineering and designing.
