Design Technology ( CDT ) at Lucton School

Course description

Our CDT A-level course is based on the Edexcel Resistant Materials Technology specification. At both AS and A2, 60% of the marks are available for coursework and 40% for the written examination. Individual creativity is therefore very important. Students at Lucton there have designed and produced some top quality project work, including a revolving wine rack, an ornately inlaid mahogany poker chip cabinet, a functioning reproduction of a Barnett Wildcat crossbow a bespoke desk and chair in oak, a collapsible aluminium and polypropylene catching cradle and a selection of custom made cricket bats. A key feature of project work is that students consider issues related to sustainability and the impact their product may have on the environment. Examples of products made include. Students are taught in a well-equipped Design and Technology suite and have access to a spacious workshop and a design room where they have opportunity to produce folio work using traditional presentation methods, as well as ICT generated work using CAD and other programs.

Entry requirements

Ideally, students will have gained at least grade B in CDT or a related GCSE subject; however, each applicant is considered on his or her merits.
