Textiles - Introduction

IMG 5930

In Years 7, 8 and 9 students complete a design and make task over 12 one hour lessons.  Students are taught how to solve problems and respond to a design brief.  We encourage students to design original and exciting ideas and then select the best methods, tools and techniques for making them.  Throughout each project students are also taught to evaluate, test and refine their ideas.

At GCSE level students are introduced to the AQA Textiles Technology Specification.  In this practical subject students learn the skills to apply their knowledge and understanding when developing ideas, planning, producing products and evaluating them.  Over this two-year course, students are taught a range of both Designing and Making skills.
