Head of department: Mr A Johns Overview Design & Technology at Jubilee gives students a fantastic opportunity to explore and create with a range of modern materials and processes.
Starting in Year 7, all students are exposed to four main areas of DT including Resistant Materials, Graphic Products, Textiles and Food & Cookery.
The students rotate the same four areas of DT but with more in-depth study and personalisation of the projects.
They are encouraged to utilise the latest manufacturing techniques to further their work and utilise different materials within the same project.
