Planning for Partial School Opening

In line with Government guidelines we are working with parents of Year 10 students and our staff to develop and implement safe strategies to extend school provision to Year 10 students along with children of key workers from June 15th . As soon as our school plan is agreed it will be published to all parents.

Please click here to read a letter from Mrs Canham regarding the reopening of schools within the Quantock Education Trust.


We have today issued a new Home Schooling Timetable to help our Year 7,8 and 9 students plan their home learning.

If you are a key worker and require childcare for your son or daughter at Haygrove School because you have no other safe childcare provision, please email stating your child’s name, registration group, parent's name, parent's occupation and the days/times you intend to send your child to school.

Design & Tech (inc. Food)

Design and Technology combines practical and technological skills with creative thinking to design and make products, foods and systems that meet human needs. Students learn to use current technologies and consider the impact of future technological developments and are encouraged to think creatively and intervene to improve the quality of life, solving problems as individuals and members of a team.

Working in stimulating contexts that provide a range of opportunities for exploration and problem solving, students are expected to respond with ideas, products and systems and are asked to challenge expectations where appropriate. They will need to combine practical and intellectual skills with an understanding of aesthetic, technical, cultural, health, social, emotional, economic, industrial and environmental issues.

The programme is designed to develop students’ confidence in using practical skills and help them to become discriminating users of products.

The Department makes extensive use of ICT at all levels and in all material areas. The use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Manufacturing (CAM) is developing rapidly, while the use of computer control and graphical design software is well established.

Students in Year 7 and 8 will study 12 units across the two-year programme.

The Department has seven dedicated rooms, equipped for different material areas including two fully-equipped kitchens. In addition there is an ICT Suite based in the Design & Technology block, which is largely used to support the work of the Department.

Note to parents/carers – All DT courses require students to pay for the materials/ingredients required to complete the course and examinations. Please contact the school if you have any concerns about this financial commitment.
