This term Year 10 students across Design & Technology, Engineering, Graphics, and Resistant Materials all participated in 'Design Ventura' a national competition run by the Design Museum London asking students to design and prototype a product suitable for sale in their shop. Groups worked throughout the term researching and designing ideas, presenting their final proposals to a panel of Judges including Mrs Shipley, Mr Hennebry, and guests from the local Rotary club.
On Saturday 13th December artist Dianna McKinnon came in to teach her techniques to out Y11, Y12 an Y13 Textiles students. We had an incredibly creative day applying her techniques and style to the projects that students are working on. As well as having a lovely day of making everyone went home with lots of ideas and work to help them with their qualifications.

The Wealden Careers Fair was hailed a success; the first of its kind in Uckfield, it was attended by seven local secondary school including UCTC who took all their year 11 students.
