This case study from Ofsted describes the development of an innovative and relevant design and technology curriculum at Turnford School, which has secured high levels of engagement and achievement.

The department formed a partnership with Mindsets to help modernise what was previously a very traditional curriculum and to experiment with innovative projects and materials. The students make products such as robots, racing cars, speakers, and docking stations for mobile phones and iPods. They learn about aerodynamics, micro electronics, the properties of materials and the effect that different processes have.

The case study includes examples of students’ work supplied by the school.
