Textiles is a popular subject within the school and the Textile room is always alive with activity and buzzing with students – at lunchtimes as well as during lessons. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge students, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own outcomes. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture and creativity of society.
Our curriculum at Churston:
•Challenges all students to be the best that they can become.
•Provide students with core knowledge required to be successful.
•Develops students who are resilient: creative, reflective and lifelong learners.
•Is coherent and draws links between cross curricular themes.
•Provides learning that accelerates our students’ understanding of the world around them.
•Equips our students with ambition and aspirations so that they become happy and successful members of society.
•Enables students have a range of qualifications that facilitate their next steps in their education and career.
What we do
Students study Textiles through two project themes. Each theme lasts ten weeks and is part of the Design Technology rotation in Years 7&8. They are given the opportunity to acquire transferable skills and encouraged to develop their visual and fine motor skills. As well as pursue their own interests within the projects, promoting personal enthusiasm and enjoyment.
