At Harrow Way we offer the following subjects to study:
AQA GCSE Design Technology
WJEC GCSE Hospitality and Catering Level 1/2
Design and Technology encourages students to take risk through a range of focused practical tasks and design and make products showing innovation, creativity and originality, using a range of materials such as paper and card, plastics, textiles, composite materials (cement and wool), electronics, timber based materials and ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Catering gives pupils not only the skills, knowledge and understanding for students to work in the catering and hospitality environment but enables all students to develop a variety of techniques for exceptional products made with style.
Design and Technology and Catering are practical subject areas which require the application of knowledge and understanding when developing ideas, planning, producing products and evaluating them. During Year 10, in Design and Technology, students will work through a range of focused practical tasks that will allow the development and learning of new skills, along with the use of different equipment both CAD and CAM before commencing their controlled assessment in the summer term of Year 10. In Catering, students experiment with a variety of processes and techniques, develop an array of skills, in preparation to commence their controlled assessment, also in the summer term of Year 10.
