Supporting your Child

Homework is required regularly and is often set to ensure that students develop their research, creativity and widen their knowledge on a particular designer, style or movement and becomes crucial when students are working on GCSE coursework.

In Year 10 and 11 this often involves summarising findings from elements within their coursework or project work.  Students are welcome to use the workshop and CAD CAM facilities with key stage four with prior arrangement from their teachers and this support is welcomed as it will enhance their practical skills and development.
