Design and Technology

At JCoSS we teach Food, Resistant Materials and Graphics within Design and Technology.  Benefiting from exceptional resources, students experience all three technologies at Key Stage 3 before making choices about further study at Key Stage 4.  Students follow an exciting and challenging modular curriculum with knowledge and a wide range of practical skills taught alongside context-based design processes in Food and Nutrition, Graphics and Resistant Materials.

Throughout Key Stage 3 students are taught in mixed ability groups, engaging in ‘real life’ design and make tasks which encourage students to be innovative and creative.  Key Stage 4 is an extension of the knowledge and skills acquired at Key Stage 3; students have the option to specialise in either Design and Technology or Food Preparation and Nutrition.

There are a range of extra curricular activities offered which include ‘Design Ventura’, ‘ Health and Safety Club’, ‘The Great JCoSS Bakeoff’ and ‘JCoSS Junior Masterchef’.
