Year 10 GCSE Design and Technology

Year 10 GCSE D&T

For the third year in a row the Year 10 GCSE D&T Graphics group have entered a national design competition that attracts 25,000 entries from across the UK. The competition is called PrintIt and is sponsored by the printing industries affiliated to an organisation called Proskills dedicated to making skills work for young people. Since entering this annual competition we have always had groups of our girls winning through to the final judging of 12 entries per category. Last year we had three girls through to the grand finals at the Grand Stationers Hall, St Paul's, London.

Although not through to the grand final this year we have just been informed that six (yes six) of our girls won through to the final twelve again this year. From an entry of 25,000 this is quite a remarkable achievement, and as I said last year, it demonstrates the talent and high level of imagination of our girls. Congratulations go to: Emily Gunn, Hattie Yeldon, Jennifer Shone, Victoria Rue, Cathrin Rhind-Tutt and Florence Powell. Each of these girls receives a certificate of excellence. Well done to these girls and to all the girls who took part. Your skills are very marketable. (Mr Crouch)
