3D Design Curriculum

Key Stage 3

The Key Stage 3 curriculum covers a wide range of skills, techniques and technical knowledge. Pupils will develop their strengths in these areas.


All assessments are completed in class in order to build up vital skills required for success at GCSE level. Pupils are made aware of what they are being assessed on, and how, early on in the unit. These assessments are based on 5 Assessment Objectives (AO’s) which have been devised from the GCSE specifications, a copy of which can be found at the front of your child’s sketchbook.

Key Stage 4

At Key Stage 4, the 3D Design GCSE course is examined and moderated by the AQA examining body. Across Key Stage 4, the skills introduced to pupils throughout Key Stage 3 are extended. Students will cover a range of practical skills as well as experiencing and practising a number of design methods.
