GCSE

Graphic Product students begin Year 10 by learning about and developing their skills in technical drawing. They will practise a range of 3D drawing techniques which will benefit them greatly when they begin their GCSE coursework; this will help them in their exam also as there is a design-based question.

Throughout Year 10 students will practise using a range of tools, equipment and machines such as the laser cutter. They will develop their expertise in a range of materials and techniques helping them to understand their properties and why they are used for certain products. The second project in Year 10 sees the students designing and making packaging for a specific product.

In March of Year 10, students will begin working on their controlled assessment which is the coursework element of the GCSE and complete it by the following February.
