Design Technology

Coronavirus Closure

Following on from the updated Government directive on school closures in the Leicester and Leicestershire area, Judgemeadow is now closed from Tuesday 30th June to all students except children of key workers who have registered for a place.

In Design Technology we aim to develop creative thinkers and confident creators. Our teaching engages pupils in practical projects that require problem solving and imagination.

We look to future technology and trends for inspiration when delivering projects and maintain links with industry to stay up-to-date.

 

Facilities

We have 6 specialist classrooms and workshops. Two Food Technology rooms, two Workshops and a Textiles and Graphics classroom. In all rooms there is space for both practical and theory work. We also have a CAD/CAM suite with a laser cutter and router available for student use. There is a large break out space and laptops which can be used in any of the classrooms.

 

 

Curriculum

In Year 9 students can opt to start their two year GCSE in Design Technology or Food Preparation and Nutrition, or they can choose to take a Creative one year course in these subjects and opt for the GCSE course over Year 10 and Year 11.
