Woodwork

Click the headings below to reveal information.

Intending to continue in 2021, Woodwork can be offered due to our strong connection, shared community and close historical links with Trinity College. This subject will be completed at the Trinity College campus under the supervision of staff from both schools.

This project-based course allows students to design, make and evaluate items using various species of wood. Students will be taken through the design process, allowing them the flexibility and creativity in personally designing projects. They will also be introduced to the many pieces of equipment available in our state of the art Design and Technology workshop. Freeform machines such as the wood lathe may also be introduced to enhance the creative aspect of this unit.

The frequency of this subject is TWO periods per week.

The Woodwork course was challenging yet fun. We made a phone case holder and a bedside light table, that I use every day. The Woodwork course lets you be creative with your designs and innovated. Overall I enjoyed the woodwork class and I would love to do it in the future.
