Year 7 is a skill building year in which pupils have the opportunity to practice hand sewing skills, firstly with a bookmark for some pupils or to challenge other pupils they will look at felting and embellishments. This will then master the technique and then application of hand sewing on a phone case using the applique technique which introduces pupils to paper pattern templates.  Food, Textiles and Product Design are on rotation which means the student will study two rotations of each subject as there is 6 half terms, 3 full terms per academic year.

Year 9 This year is a preparation for the next level at KS4. Pupils have a firm foundation on which to really showcase their skills and talents as well as learn lots of new ones. Pupils will start off looking at presentation and they will have their own choice of how they want their work to look (AO1). They will then go on to look at and analyse designers (A02) and catwalk fashion worn by celebrities. Pupils will use this knowledge to design for a catwalk using their chosen theme of Botanical or Architecture. This really stretches their imagination.  Food, Textiles and Product Design are on rotation which means the student will study two rotations of each subject as there is 6 half terms, 3 full terms per academic year.Knowledge Organisers — Kingsbury School – A Specialist Science and Mathematics Academy (fireflycloud.net)
Year 10 and Year 11 This two-year course will consist of a term in year 10 skills building looking at three artists/ designers which include- Howard Hodgkin, Diedre Adams and Orla Keily. Pupils will develop their folder work and will create a mark making skirt and bag inspired by Orla Keily using print making. After Christmas pupils will attend two trips for their primary research for their 60% coursework project. These trips will be to The Oxford Natural History Museum and The Botanical Garden. This will be a great opportunity to practice some photography skills. Pupils will create an amazing folder and will create a final outcome in a 5-hour mock. Pupils will then be given the opportunity to improve upon this mock with feedback.Knowledge Organisers — Kingsbury School – A Specialist Science and Mathematics Academy (fireflycloud.net)
