Design & Technology
Subject Leader Mrs Mazie Lloyd

In Design and Technology at Selston we encourage students to think creatively in order to give meaning to the world in which we live. From environmental issues, healthy eating to the built environment, we encourage students to understand what their impact is on themselves, society, and the global environment.

During Key Stage 3 students will experience both Design and Technology and Food Technology. Our newly refurbished state of the art rooms, allow students to learn in a vibrant environment and then move into the practical areas to see their ideas become reality.

During Design and Technology students will have the opportunity to problem solve through teamwork, drawing, modelling, and prototyping and evaluating their outcomes. Our new ICT suite offers students the opportunity to explore 3D design and technical engineering software to visualize their designs.

In Food Technology lessons students will cover food preparation skills and learn how to cook a variety of healthy and economical meals. Taking into account how food is produced and what impact this has on our own bodies and the world in which we live.

KS4 Construction will introduce students to joinery and bricklaying which happens in our brand-new purpose-built area. This gives students the opportunity to experience a real world understanding of the built environment.

At KS4 students will be able to select one or a combination of courses from Engineering, Hospitality and Catering and Construction and the built environment. They will be able to enhance their subject skills in a more specific way.
