Year 10 GCSE Materials Technology pupils are working on a mock NEA in preparation for their real NEA context starting in June. Pupils are designing an educational toy, which they will shortly be starting to make. Pupils have completed some exceptional design work for this project so far, including initial design ideas, final designs and card modelling.

Year 10 Education Toy Design Idea Examples

Year 11 GCSE Materials Technology pupils are well on with their NEA and are producing some fantastic practical work. Pupils write their own design brief, and design and make a product of their choice.

Wednesday 4th March was our sixth form taster day, potential A Level, Design and Technology students came up with some fantastic ideas as part of their design challenge. Here are some examples of their work. They were given a random selection of words and were asked to use them to design an innovative product. They then presented these to the rest of the group.
