Within the Design and Technology team there is a supportive and collaborative ethos and we are always open to new ideas. We regularly reflect on our delivery to ensure our students gain the best experience and aim to enthuse creative problem solving. Weald of Kent students are driven, inquisitive and committed to learning. Our results at both GCSE and A Level are excellent and we frequently outperform other schools in our specialist areas.  


At Key Stage 3 students develop a broad framework of skills and knowledge across a wide range of Design and Technology and Food and Nutrition disciplines. This provides a strong foundation which enables students to make an informed choice to specialise in one discipline at GCSE; Food and Nutrition or Design and Technology. 


At present, in Key Stage 4, we follow the GCSE AQA Syllabus in Design & Technology and WJEC for Food & Nutrition.  


At A level, in Key Stage 5 we follow the Eduqas Product Design syllabus for Design and Technology. We encourage students to use a wide range of materials and techniques from engineering to furniture design and manufacture. This compliments the diversity if the skills and understanding required of the A level course. 


The purpose built Technology block comprises of two workshops (one with heat treatment facilities); two clean rooms (one of which houses the laser cutter) each with a suite of 20 computers and additional working space; and a Food and Nutrition room.
