Textiles - Introduction
In Years 7, 8 and 9 students complete a design and make project over a series of up to eighteen lessons. They are taught 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 work.
Students in Years 10 and 11 follow the Edexcel Textiles Design GCSE. This is a practical 2-year course where students learn the skills needed to apply their knowledge and understanding of methods and techniques used by a range of Fashion and Textile designers.
