Westfield School

Design Technology

This subject includes Resistant Materials, (Systems and Control Year 7), Food Technology, Textiles and ICT. Pupils are taught in large purpose built working areas using specialist tools. The course is orientated towards problem solving within a design framework using different materials and equipment.


Resistant Materials is taught in the Technology room where pupils benefit from a fully equipped workshop.


In Textiles pupils develop their design skills and learn to use different tools correctly. Pupils learn to sew using a combination of hand sewing and sewing machines.


The large well equipped Food Technology room is where all pupils learn about healthy living, good diets, preparing food and taste testing. We aim to help our pupils to leave Westfield with the ability to prepare and cook a complete meal.
