We continue the Product Design theme at A-level. Students can opt to complete an AS or full A-level in Product Design. Whilst there is no formal requirement for them to have completed a GCSE in Design Technology, they will find their previous experience useful. The A-level course comprises four modules. Two are assessed via a written exam and there are two practical projects to complete. The split at A-level is 25% for each module.


We have a well-equipped workshop incorporating a variety of tools and technologies. Traditional hand tools are available for bench joinery projects, graphic design and textiles. Machinery for woodworking and engineering is also widely used. Most recently we have invested in Computer Aided Design and manufacturing equipment. We have a cutter plotter to make signs and sticker and a 3 dimensional printer which can make objects in plastics.
