Year 11 Design & Technology GCSE Controlled Assessment Projects

Dear Parents,

The students have been working for over 4 months on their GCSE controlled assessment project, which accounts for 60% of the final GCSE grade.

The project is broken down into sections, with deadlines attached to make it more manageable and allow for regular checking and feedback.

We are now approaching a very important deadline where the product and design folder must be complete.


Deadline:           Thursday 12th February 2015


To help students meet this deadline, the D&T teachers are running after school sessions to provide further support during this important stage. It is essential that this work is submitted and verified by your child’s teacher as it will otherwise seriously impact upon the final marks for their GCSE.

If students miss this deadline, they will be expected to attend catch-up sessions during half term on the following days:


Subject Day
Electronics (Mr Chalkley) Monday 16th February 9 am to 3 pm
Graphics (Mr Joueid) Monday 16th February 9 am to 3 pm
Textiles (Ms Freeman) Wednesday 18th February 9 am to 3 pm


Please download the attached letter and complete the slip to confirm <name>’s attendance at the after school session.

Thank you for your help, support and cooperation.
