Design & Technology Department

Welcome to Design & Technology at Dyson Perrins. Design and Technology is taught in eight fully equipped purpose built rooms by a team of enthusiastic and experienced teachers supported by two classroom technicians. We have recently opened our extensively refurbished workshops which comprise of three fully equipped multi-material workshops and a CAD/CAM studio with 3D Printer. In addition to this there are two large training kitchens, a Textiles studio and a separate classroom for more formal teaching. We are proud of our facilities and the opportunities that we offer to our students from Y7 right through to Sixth Form.

At Key Stage Three (Y7, Y8 and Y9) we teach a series of progressive projects where students build on skills each year before making GCSE option choices in Y9. During each year students are taught Textiles Technology, Food Technology, Resistant Materials and Electronics and experience the different subjects on a rotational basis throughout the year. In addition to research and design work, students spend a considerable amount of time focusing on improving their practical skills to give them a greater understanding of tools, equipment, materials, ingredients and processes.

At Key Stage Four (Y10 & Y11) students opt for one of the subjects to study at GCSE. In addition to the subjects listed above we also offer two vocational qualifications; Child Development and Hospitality & Catering. The range of courses we offer at GCSE are very popular and we never cease to be amazed by the creative abilities of our students. Creativity, when combined with knowledge of materials, ingredients and processes leads our students to create individual design solutions in a variety of contexts which you will be able to explore by clicking on the subject links on the left of this page.

At Key Stage 5 (Y12 & Y13) we offer AS/A2 levels in Food Technology, Product Design and Health and Social Care and BTEC Textiles. All of these courses allow our students to fully immerse themselves in their chosen subject area and explore a whole range of concepts that further underpin their skills and experiences. We are always very impressed with the high level of creativeness and combination of skills that our students display at KS5. We are very proud to see our young designers and technologists develop from the raw excitement of a Year 7 student into professional, analytical technologists with a wide range of design and practical skills that they will further develop at University, on an apprenticeship or in employment.
