Through these types of activities students are actively contributing to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of themselves and their community.


The curriculum is aspirational, giving pupils the skills to have the strength of character to know that they can learn from their mistakes and create a better product in the future through practising and developing the skills and knowledge that they are experiencing across the material areas of Resistant Materials and Food and Nutrition.
