GCSE D&T Students, creating and modelling their paper garments

Below are pictures from GCSE Design and Technology students in years 9 and 10, creating and modelling garments that they had constructed out of paper. The learning objectives of the sessions were for the students to quickly learn about the qualities of paper, opening up discussion about the performance characteristics of the material they were using. Working in teams, they learnt the importance of making prototypes, and they discovered the ability to quickly amend their design ideas if their initial ideas weren’t working the way they had planned, without wasting expensive material. They also learnt about garment shaping, including pleating and adding darts, to ensure a garment fits around the torso.

Dissection Club

Dissection Club

I didn’t really know what to expect from Dissection Club apart from, I knew we were going to be cutting things up! But after the first week of doing it I found out that not only is Dissection Club interesting but also very fun!

Dissection Club is run by Mr Cockcroft and Mrs Lamont. Before each dissection we have a quick lesson so we know what to look for and the best way to open it up! This is very interesting.

Then it’s on to dissecting. Now that we know what to do and what to look for it’s much easier to find the main part of what you are dissecting. The dissecting part is the most fun!

Mr Cockcroft and Mrs Lamont come round to make sure  we understand the parts and sometimes 6th formers and other science teachers come and help us too.

So far we have dissected three interesting things:


Lambs Heart

And a Fish Head

I learnt so much from each dissection and I can’t wait for the next dissection! My favourite was probably the lambs heart because I could easily tell which side of the heart would pump the blood around the body and which one would send the blood to the lungs to collect the oxygen!

I didn’t realise how many friends I could make from just one club! This club definitely helped me meet new people that I had never really talked to or met before!

This club is awesomely run and is a very good club to go to!

Yr 9 Young  Enterprise – Final Total !


Well done to Year 9 who have raised over £400 for Ghana this year as part of their ‘Young Enterprise’ module. Looking at the photos and listening to the accounts of those who have been a part of ‘Team Ghana’ has had a lasting effect on many of our students. As a result, they have worked very  hard to apply various business strategies  and  compete against opposing ‘companies’  to raise the most money as possible for this good cause. A big ‘Thank You’ also goes to all the friends and families who were persuaded to buy their cookies !

Mrs Walker.

Ghana 1 - 07.07

On Saturday, the Team have visited the centre of Kumasi to learn more about Ghanaian history and culture, giving context to what they are experiencing.

They also learnt about the place of Christianity within Ghanaian heritage and saw the Cathedral Basilica of St Peter- dedicated to the Archbishop of Kumasi in 2004.

On Sunday, the Team visited St Michael’s parish for another typical joyful Ghanaian mass, filled with dancing, singing and praise.

They also had the opportunity to see the parish primary school which is in desperate need of additional classrooms to accommodate the children.  The efforts of Team Ghana will put a roof on this block and provide 4 extra classrooms.

Ghana 1 05.07

Today the Team left Samaritan Villa, Kumasi and moved to the John Paul II Formation centre, Obuasi, where they will spend the next four days. En route they visited St Luke’s Catholic school which is where their fundraising ideas have been focused- the school are in need of water and the funds raised will provide a bore-hole.

They were so delighted to see the visitors from the UK and we join with them in thanking everyone for all the support as it will now make such a big difference to their daily lives.

Our Sixth Formers spent time mixing with students and staff and were treated to fabulous performances from the school children.
