Technology

The Technology & Design team work together to provide an enjoyable and productive learning and teaching environment that allows all pupils from Year 8 through to Year 14 to engage in design and make activities during and after the normal daily timetabled framework.
 
Pupils enjoy the creative and fun experiences fostered within the T&D department and all teaching and technical staff are committed to providing each young person with the mental ‘tool kit’ required to achieve their full potential.
 
The courses offered at Key Stages 4 and 5 are wide and varied and offer our young people academic and vocational examination options (see list below).
 
The T&D staff pride themselves in having helped with the successes of our pupils past and present and we endeavour to continue to be a positive influence in our young peoples lives.

The STEM MODULE visited GHS on Friday 15th December. Yr11 Engineering & Manufacturing pupils were shown how to use CAD software (Solidworks) to create name plaques and then CAM equipment (Micro Routers) to manufacture their individual designs. This was a fun activity that all pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed.

 

RAF Fun in Flight Roadshow

On Monday 27th November 2017 all year 10 pupils took part in a visit from the RAF STEM Roadshow. The roadshow was devised in response to the Governments acknowledgement that there is a shortfall of ‘home grown’ scientists and engineers.

‘Fun with Flight’ was a 50 minute jet fuelled presentation exploring the physics of flying. Students discovered how the physics they use in the class room is an integral part of the work that engineers undertake in the RAF and other engineering organisations.

Drones, balloons, airships and even jet engines were all used in draw dropping experiments.
