Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy




During Year 7 and 8, students study a broad range of technology subjects including resistant materials, food technology, electronics and textiles.

In Year 8 students also focus on industrial practice and producing in quantity. At KS4 and KS5, students are given the option to study a variety of vocational BTEC, NCFE, GCSE and A-Level qualifications including:

  • Fashion Design
  • Vehicle Technology
  • Construction
  • Engineering
  • Industry Skills
  • Product Design
  • Design Craft
  • Graphics
  • Hospitality and Catering

We build students’ knowledge of the subject as well as introducing them to galleries, exhibitions and linking with business and enterprise.

To support the learning and understanding of our students we have a large range of materials. We are fortunate enough to have benefitted from new building with a fully functioning workshop and Catering classroom.

Further to this we have a garage with a wide range of equipment to support our students learning including, a car, engine blocks, go karts and motorbikes all for students to work on to further their understanding.

Engineering has benefitted from investment in Technology having several thousand pounds worth of Lego and Vex robotics to enable students to experiment and learn through doing. This has enabled us to ensure that learning for our students is active and develops understanding effectively and thoroughly.
