What a busy year in Design Technology! Students have had a fun packed interactive Year of projects, that I pleased to say has been amazing!

To round the year off Design Technology are embarking on two house competitions, senior and junior house competitions for Year 8 and Year 6.

The competitions give students the chance to put their skills they have learnt throughout the year to the test, it also welcomes those budding chefs with a keen interest in food technology, whilst competing in their school house of Alton, Chartley or Tutbury.

We are very excited to announce that we have the sponsorship this year of Tesco, who will be providing all ingredients and judging, Burton Albion’s Head Chef and Alton Towers, who will be sponsoring the prizes and judging the competitions too.

These industrial links give students the chance to look at how their education is essential for real life careers in industry.

Lots of work is going on to develop S.T.E.M links within school which encompasses Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths we will keep you posted on these!
