GCSE Textiles gives pupils the opportunity to design and make quality products using fabrics and a range of different processes.  This course focuses on fashion and accessories as well as interior design.

During Year 10, pupils will begin by learning about fibres and fabrics.  They will then complete a mini project which will focus on developing and improving construction and decorative skills in order to produce a beautifully creative textile product.

GCSE Textiles coursework begins in April.  Students can choose from a selection of design briefs according to their strengths and interests.
