Design Technology

Design Technology is a subject that all students follow throughout years 7 and 8. Students study this curriculum area for 2 lessons per week and will visit the 4 key areas of food, graphics, product design and textiles in each academic year on a rotational basis. At the end of Y8, students select to follow their chosen Design technology course(s) for their GCSE options and have 2 lessons per week from year 9 until the end of Y11 for any area of technology they are successful in gaining for their GCSE courses. 

Students, as designers, achieving, enjoying and reaching their true potential are at the heart of the Technology area at Leeds East Academy. We always encourage students to embrace a ‘Can do’ attitude which helps to create a positive ethos.  A combination of enthusiastic students who take pride in the work that they produce and teachers passionate about their subject specialist areas underpins high quality learning and results in the Art and Technology team area.
