Design & Technology

Design & Technology is key to developing critical and creative thinkers, allowing students to evaluate and understand how everything around them is designed and made. At Calday Grange Grammar School students are given the opportunity to make their own choices, problem solve and build up a resilience within their own working practice, enabling them to become reflective thinkers. 


Students will demonstrate their knowledge and skills, often by producing a portfolio or a physical product while working within a brief. They will demonstrate safe working practices, while working individually and show an ability to critically evaluate and select appropriate working methods within a variety of material areas.


Students are given a grounding at KS3 through a variety of project based learning that covers the key skills required at KS4 and 5. At A Level students can choose Product Design to continue their pathway further.
