Enhanced Design at Bishop's Stortford College

Published Wednesday 16th of October 2013 01:22:14 PM

As well as celebrating some superb exam results, the Bishop�s Stortford College Design & Technology department are enjoying the result of a major refurbishment programme this term after a summer break of intense activity to upgrade and improve accommodation and facilities.

The work was timed to coincide with the start of increased Design & Technology provision for the College's Prep School pupils from Form 1 (year 5) to Upper Third (year 8). This provision for pupils aged from nine to thirteen, of an hour a week for the entire academic year, is unique in our region. To resource this increase, Mr Jess Osborne has been appointed as the dedicated Prep School Design & Technology teacher.

�This academic year is also important for D&T at Bishop�s Stortford College since the department will be celebrating 80 years of Design & Technology education in 2014 - the original woodwork shop started life in 1934., said John Trant, Head of Design & Technology. �A number of events are planned to celebrate this milestone and with our enhanced provision and facilities, we are looking forward to further exciting developments as the year progresses.�

The summer also saw John Trant being elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in recognition of his work in design education, research and school governance.
