Welcome to the Art, Design and Technology Department



Here is our latest Art Newsletter



Welcome to ADT.  We are a vibrant and energetic department that offers an exciting curriculum in Art, Design Technology and Food.  At Key Stage 3, all students have 2 lessons of Art a week and 2 lessons of Design and Technology a week.  The DT curriculum is delivered on a carousel. Students spend the Autumn term studying Food, the Spring term studying Textiles and the Summer term studying Product Design.

At Key Stage 4, we offer GCSE Art and Design (OCR), and BTEC Level 2 Home Cooking Skills.  Students enjoy the courses, which are practical and skills focused.  The results have been outstanding, with 100% of last year’s cohort passing our Food and Art courses.
