Product Design

Subject Mission Statement

Art, Design and Technology subjects sit in the curriculum to develop students practical hands-on learning experience. Students develop the skills to be independent and creative developing their knowledge of both technical and life skills. Our curriculum is one that offers something for all, where diversity and individuality is celebrated, and personal outlet is encouraged and embraced.


The Three-Dimensional (Product Design) course is designed to follow on from the GCSE Product Design course and all our other courses on the AQA Art and Design Specification. It is recommended that one of these courses has been successfully completed at GCSE to maintain the high demand of the work and independence required to study the A Level course. The two year course will comprise of a personal investigation, which will include written material around the student’s individual design work and chosen line of enquiry. This will include a structured, extended response of between 1000 and 3000 words of continuous prose. Each student’s investigation will be an in-depth study that demonstrates the student’s ability to construct and develop a sustained line of reasoning, from an initial starting point to a final realisation. There is also an externally set practical assignment including a development period from the 1st February plus a 15 hour supervised examination.
