The Product Design department at George Salter Academy is a successful department. It is forward thinking in its delivery of Product Design at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5, and Engineering at Key Stage 4. Product Design and Engineering are taught in 2 specialist rooms which allow students to design and realise their ideas.
We aim to inspire and cultivate future Designers and Engineers. We aim to provide a learning environment where pupils can be creative and develop thinking skills, work independently and develop self-esteem. It is our intension that pupils develop attitudes of curiosity, enquiry, initiative, ingenuity, resourcefulness as they experience a range of different material areas.
We have high expectations of all our students and lead by example. Our teachers Ms Gaize (Head of Department) and Miss Raven have industry background and deliver Product Design and Engineering with a consistent and co-ordinated approach.
The Product Design & Engineering Department offers a number of study support sessions for students across different year groups. Key Stage 4 and 5 students are well supported in preparation for both internal and external assessments with after school revision, twilight sessions, and holiday activities.
