D&T current curriculum
In Y7 and Y8 students study projects linked directly to the National Curriculum. They are allocated three periods a week, one double lesson and one single lesson.
During KS3 each pupil has the opportunity to study each of the areas offered on two occasions, with the exception of computer control which is only delivered in Y8 only.
The subject areas are Resistant Materials, Graphics, Food, Textiles, and Computer Control/Electronics.
