Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy


The Design Technology Department offers students the opportunity to develop an awareness of design in our society, together with skills to design and make quality products which are fit for purpose.

We encourage active learning and we foster innovation and creativity during lessons. In all our lessons we stress the need for safety, accuracy and quality when using tools and equipment. In key stage three, our students will work on a range of design and make activities intended to stretch their abilities and build their knowledge and understanding of the subject.


 In key stage four our students have the opportunity to specialise in GCSE Graphics and Food Technology. Through the use of our well-equipped design studios, ICT suite, workshops and food technology rooms, our students gain a greater understanding of the subject. We encourage students to develop learning and thinking skills through group design projects and discussions of issues affecting the design of products in our society.
