Sheldon is one of the few schools in the country that offers high quality A Level courses in design and technology. Our visit to Paris provides our product design students with experiences in urban planning at La Defense, our fashion and textiles students with the opportunity to see a fashion show on the Champs-Elysees and enables our food technology students to source ingredients at Rungis market

We recruit motivated and enthusiastic students who perform well in a Sixth Form with a high reputation. Many of our brightest students combine DT product design with maths and physics before going to university to study engineering, architecture, product design. Many students have reported back to us that the design and manufacture elements of the DT A level have given them a jump start at university. 

Many of our most able students combine our food, science and and nutrition course with science subjects before going to university to study product development or dietary courses, whilst others want to become reputable chefs. Due to popular demand, we now run the DT fashion and textiles course which has followed the growth at GCSE where results have been outstanding.
