New for 2017 AQA Design and Technology – Fashion and Textiles A Level
Our Textiles Department are very excited about the new Fashion and Textiles A Level specification which looks to be a really engaging course.

There are new look exam questions including multiple choice questions, short answer questions and extended answers; this makes up 50% of the exam. The non-exam assessment is a single make project and there are some great ideas e.g. environmentally friendly fashion and sub culture in the teenage market. The staff cannot wait to start teaching it! They are also planning a visit to the new improved Clothes Show in Liverpool in the summer term.

It is always lovely to hear from students who are following their dreams and several of our previous Textiles students have pursued career pathways at university. Rebecca Middleton is studying Fashion Design and Marketing at Northumbria University, Sarah Buss is studying Costume with Performance Design at Arts Bournemouth University and soon Jamie Kneen will pursue a career in tailoring.
Please contact Mrs Newey who can provide more information about this fantastic new course.
