Head of Design and Technology, Mr Sturla, reports:

‘Our Year 10 Students are currently doing a practice NEA (non-examination assessment). The point of this is to focus on specific aspects of the NEA. The aim of this is to give students the confidence and skills before they embark on their real NEA from June 1st. The aspect of the NEA is the Prototyping and Modelling stage. Students are using a range of modelling materials such as Styrofoam, Card, Wood Dowel etc. They are creating 3D Models to make their design ideas become a reality.’
