Shenfield High School

Philosophy and Aims

The department aims to give full access to the Engineering curriculum for all pupils regardless of their gender, background or ability. All pupils will have the opportunity to achieve their full potential in this new and exciting Btec all they need to bring with them is a keen work ethic.

The course provides students with understanding of materials along with how and why they are used in various different applications, health and safety in engineering environments and show them how to analyse products in terms of their form, function and the way in which they were manufactured.  Entry on the engineering course also automatically qualifies students for entry into the STEM activities the school organises including rocket building and the soapbox challenge.

We are looking forward to achieving great success working as a supportive team to further our students’ progression.
