Design pathway

Use future-focused design tools to plan the buildings of the future

Our Design programme includes GCSEs and A-levels in Art & Design: 3D Design – Architecture and Interior Design in addition to a Level 2 or 3 TechBac in Construction and the Built Environment (C&BE). This programme will prepare students for careers in architecture, interior design, planning and other design careers in C&BE.


At Key Stage 4, you will learn the fundamentals of architecture and interior design in our purpose-built design studios. These will be resourced with a mix of traditional drawing and model-making facilities and the most up-to-date Computer Aided Design (CAD) / Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) resources including full colour 3D printers.


At Key Stage 5, if you follow the Design pathway you will develop your design skills with further qualifications up to A-level in Art & Design and build your skills in Autodesk Revit – industry standard design software. You will see your designs become reality as we build scale models and full-scale structures that you will design on our purpose-built construction park.
