D&T Product Design @ All Saints' Catholic High School

Product Design is suitable for anyone with an interest in one of the huge range of design and technology related careers, from interior design to advertising, architecture, and engineering. It complements many subjects, connecting the arts and sciences together. Students develop an understanding of the complex relationship between materials, design manufacture and marketing. Reflecting the wide ranging activities of professional designers students have the opportunity to work with modern and smart materials and components with an emphasis on sustainable design.

Examinations are restricted to the core content, while students can utilise a wider range of materials such as ceramics, textiles and electronics to enhance their project work. Industrial visits and links with manufacturing companies will provide students with work-related learning opportunities and a greater understanding of the role of designers in industry.

All Saints design studios give students the opportunity to work with state of the art equipment and facilities.
