Design and Technology - A Level at The St Marylebone CE School

Course description

We are pleased to offer product design (which also includes a graphic design element) as our Design and Technology AS and A Level.

60% of each qualification is allocated to a portfolio of projects, a product investigation, a design project and a make project specified by student and teachers.

The other 40% is a written exam that covers materials, processes, manufacturing systems and the history of design. Design and Technology A level is an excellent foundation for further studies in design at college or university.

It is a good basis for a degree in product design, graphics, engineering, architecture, interior design, theatre and TV design - and many other design disciplines. We also help students find excellent work placements in design practices; arrange relevant industrial and cultural visits; organise guest speakers; and help students prepare specialist portfolios in preparation for university entrance interviews.

Students must be prepared to work consistently throughout the course with a highly proactive and resourceful approach in order to produce high quality design work and excellent finished products.

They will be supported by well qualified teachers who have all worked in the design and engineering industry and who achieve excellent results.

Entry requirements

1. Grade B in a Design and Technology subject at GCSE


2. Successful portfolio interview with Head of Learning to assess suitability for the course demonstrating high achievement and commitment to this subject if GCSE not taken.
