Key Stage 3

Study of Design & Technology at Harrop Fold is intended to prepare our students for a successful engagement within the technology world and enables them to intervene creatively to improve that world. Years 7-9 involves studying materials, products and processes through design, creating projects which are fun, engaging and enlightening. Having successfully completed lower school projects, many students go on to take D&T at GCSE level.

Key Stage 4

The GCSE course followed is the AQA examination in Design Technology. This is a springboard into multi-trade apprenticeships and college courses such as; Product Design, Games Design, Construction, Engineering, Architecture and many others. We have strong links with local colleges and are well placed to assist in developing our students’ future careers.

Through completion of practical projects, designed to develop skills and techniques. Students create a design folio which documents the development of a final product idea, in preparation for their final exam.
