Design & Technology

Key Stage 5

Students can study Fashion and Textiles for an A-Level at Lady Margaret School. Students study the traditional and latest developments in fibres, yarns and fabrics as well as gaining a working knowledge of the properties of fibres and fabrics and their uses, history of fashion and the work of professionals within the industry. 

Students are also taught how to build on existing design skills to help them respond to contextual themes and how to respond to these creatively so they can ultimately develop and create their own design make and evaluate project in the non-exam assessment. 

A key aspect of year 12 is developing students manufacturing skills, from pattern drafting, construction and modelling skills so that students feel confident responding to design briefs with creative and complex ideas. 

We follow the AQA specification for Fashion and Textiles at Lady Margaret School and therefore the qualification is broken down into two written exams testing student technical knowledge and design making principles and a practical design make and evaluate projects that is assessed through the non-exam assessment.
