Learner of the Week


Max - Design & Technology

Max has made excellent progress with his Engineering coursework, producing a number of clearly drawn and feasible designs that reflect the research he has conducted. He has then developed these using 3D CAD and is well placed to begin preparing to manufacture his design. Max has also shown a detailed understanding of a number of engineering processes and techniques within his exam preparation.

Mr Cannell
Resistant Materials
Max is a highly motivated and conscientious student who consistently strives to do his very best in Resistant Materials. He has recently completed the design of his GCSE coursework project which has been meticulously researched and presented in the Memphis style. It shows a high level of thought and consideration to the identified client. He is worked a level above his target which is highly commendable and well deserved.
I would like to congratulate Max on behalf of all the Design & Technology staff on this well-deserved award.

Mr Cantrill – Assistant Director of D&T
