Design Technology at Trinity
Every pupil does Design Technology during Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 & 9). They have a double lesson each week. Usually, the pupils have a teacher for 6 to 8 weeks for a particular project and then move on to do a new project with a different Technology teacher. This enables them to cover all the areas of DT which are: Graphic Products, Food Technology, Textiles Technology, Systems & Control and Resistant Materials.
