Welcome to the Materials Science Department. Our philosophy and approach is based upon making learning an engaging and enjoyable experience, accessible and challenging to all.
The Materials Science subjects encourage pupils to become creative problem solvers and gives them the opportunity to develop their own design proposals. Pupils create products and systems using a range of equipment, materials and components. Pupils have the opportunity to evaluate throughout the process and apply theoretical knowledge to further their understanding.
We have six specialist rooms, two food Rooms, one soft materials room, two equipped workshops and a dedicated computer suite. We have a range of CAD/CAM equipment including a laser cutter, 3D printer, computerised sewing machine and textiles printing equipment. All rooms have access to a digital projector. We have a number of computers spread throughout the department.
