Over the last decade we have harnessed technology for learning and supporting school processes which enables our high levels of progress. Every child has their own device across all year groups and the online platform, the Learning Gateway, is the driving force of our academy community. It provides access to class on-line areas and teacher resources designed to support and enhance learning for our young people.

The Design and Technology department has outstanding facilities available, this includes multiple CNC Trend Routers, CNC lathes, Metal Lathes, Wood Lathes, 3D printers of an industrial standard, and multiple laser cutters, as well as a broad range of the usual facilities across 4 workshops, a CNC room, and a design studio.  The successful candidate will be joining a growing team of 7 members of teaching staff. We deliver GCSE Product Design as a core subject with over 400 students taking the subject in years 10 and 11, plus over 100 students taking Product Design at A Level, making us a hugely successful, busy and thriving department.
