Design, Engineering, Food & Nutrition

Choose a subject

Design and Engineering is an inspiring, rigorous and demanding practical subject. That invites students to learn, think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team.

At Coundon Court, we encourage students to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Students are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are inspired to become innovators and risk-takers. 

The intent of our FOOD curriculum is to equip students with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating. We aim to instill a love of cooking. Learning how to cook is a crucial life skill for students now and in later life. We aim to encourage independent learning through practical participation. Students have the opportunity to explore a range of foods that ultimately widens their palate, cultural awareness and skills to prepare them for adulthood.
