Overview

The Design and Technology department at Lymm High aims to provide learners with a broad and exciting experience through engaging schemes of work.

Students are given opportunities to work with a range of subject areas including Graphics, Resistant Materials, Systems and Control.

At Key Stage 3, students are encouraged to think imaginatively to design and make products using a wide range of materials. Learners will be taught how to problem solve covering themes such as health, typography and mechanisms. Cooperative projects enable students to develop transferrable personal skills that can be used within any subject area.  Students learn from first-hand knowledge and experience working with tools and modern equipment that can be found in the Design and Technology industry.

The knowledge and understanding gained at KS3 provides learners with the skills required to study the specialist subject areas at KS4 and KS5.
