DT - Food



Oakfield offers an exciting and innovative Design Technology experience, which includes learning in resistant materials, textiles and food.

Our Specialist Design Technology Team

Ms Lesley Peat, (Head of Design and Technology/ DT,) Mrs Philippa Nightingale (DT Teacher.) & Natalie Booth (DT Technician)



Students will learn a variety of hand and machine sewing skills while developing fun projects using a variety of dying methods.

Resistant Materials

Pupils do projects from the beginning of Y5 through to year 8 that allow them to use a variety of different materials and build on skills year on year.  Pupils are taught in both of the specialist rooms in all years.


At Oakfield we are committed to teaching pupils about the importance of healthy eating and also teaching them the skills that they need to produce food as part of a healthy diet.

Pupils benefit from a specially equipped room, that encourages them to work independently to develop cooking skills supported by theory work that enables them to analyse the nutritional benefits of the dishes they make.
