We have three technicians who help with the day-to-day organising, ordering and preparation of materials and resources. The Art & Technology faculty is accommodated in four specialist Art rooms, four Resistant Materials workshops, one ICT room, one general classroom and a Food area. We work together as a team to give our students the powerful technological and artistic knowledge they need for successful lives. We aim to encourage a love of our diverse specialist areas in our students; we want them to have a positive and successful experience encouraging life skills. We endeavour to use evidence-based pedagogy to achieve the best learning for all our students.

At KS4, we offer a range of qualifications, including AQA GCSE Food Preparation & Nutrition, WJEC L1/2 Engineering, the L1/2 Tech Award in Construction & the Built Environment and OCR GCSE Art & Design.
