Design Technology

Design TechnologyDesign and Technology at Childwall Abbey School combines enthusiasm, creativity, knowledge and experience, which strives for excellence in Food Technology and Resistant Materials. Pupils of all levels of ability are provided with a stimulating, interactive and challenging experience through both Key Stages 3 and 4. They will be able to put their designs into practice, using modern technologies, making a product to their own specification.

For many pupils the move to Key Stage 3 will give them their first experience of a workshop environment. Designed around the National Curriculum all our schemes of work encourage safe working practices and the questioning mind. Strong cross curricular links develop a holistic view to the subject.

At the end of year 9 pupils will have the opportunity to choose a vocational pathway, to study a variety of Entry Level pathways, which include Resistant Materials and Food technology. We believe that the Design Technology department offers broad and balanced educational pathway choices.

Above all, pupils learn the skill and knowledge to design what they imagine and make what they design. Thus experiencing the excitement and responsibility of being creative through their own design and making.
