We are proud of the varied and exciting syllabus we teach in Resistant Materials Technology and the extensive new facilities we have.
All pupils can expect to work with and learn about a broad range of tools and materials to create increasingly challenging projects. Pupils will also gain experience of industrial techniques such as vacuum forming, pewter casting and CAD/CAM. Projects have been specifically designed to create a broad and varied curriculum that builds on the previous skills learned.
Pupils are supported to participate in every stage of the design process. This can include activities such as; analysing products, designing, developing ideas, modelling, planning, constructing, testing and evaluating. The subject really does offer something to cater for every pupil’s interests; whether it’s drawing, making or planning we build on their skills (regardless of ability) and develop their confidence and independence in the workshop.
In Resistant Materials we are commited to….
Giving pupils as broad and creative experience as possible.
Providing a safe learning environment where pupils can develop their practical skills.
Increasing pupils’ understanding of the technological and industrial world.
Improving confidence, independence, resilience, decision making and problem solving.
Supporting the growth of key skills (communication, social skills, motor skills concentration, coordination, sequencing) and providing application for literacy, numeracy and ICT.
