product design




This course has been designed to encourage pupils to take a broad view of design and technology, to develop their capacity to design and make products and to appreciate the complex relations between design, materials, manufacture and marketing. The subject demands a creative, experimental and industrious approach.


Why is it a useful qualification?

Design and Technology is a popular subject for students wishing to continue education at university level in it’s own right and as part of an overall rounded qualification for entry to many courses. Opportunities for careers are many. You need only to consider with an enquiring mind the world that surrounds you. A level Design Technology enables students to present an impressive folio of design work which is useful for interviews. The focus for university courses is very broad and includes the following: Product Design, Mechanical Engineering, Architecture, Furniture Design, Theatre Set Design and interior Design. Our Alumni, who have successfully completed A level Product Design, have gone on to pursue it at degree level at prestigious universities in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia.
