Bolton School Senior Girls

Design and Technology

The extensive facilities within the Design and Technology Department make it possible for pupils to experience a whole range of designing and making activities, across a wide range of material areas including timber, polymers and textiles. Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 are encouraged to design and develop products through which they learn the skills necessary to achieve carefully constructed outcomes. Students moving onto GCSE and Advanced Level are encouraged to take an independent and experimental approach in order to develop original ideas and plan these through to the making of high quality products.

The department is made up of 6 teaching staff and 2 curriculum support staff across the two different discreet subject specialisms. Together, staff encourage students to explore their interests further by providing a diverse range of clubs and activities.
