Last summer was a busy one for the students and dedicated design and technology staff at Worden Sports College who were involved in the schools first ever Summer Technology Academy.Organised and delivered by the design and technology department this was by no means a new venture for some of the team. Keith Burroughs (Head of Faculty) and Scott Cunningham (Teacher of Resistant Materials) had both been involved every year since 2005 in the schools summer academies project with Suzie Carr (Teacher of Food Technology/Catering and newly appointed Head of PHSE) involved since 2007. Previously the event had been staged by the PE department and as such had a very different focus. Having been approached to co-ordinate the event Suzie and Scott quickly enlisted the help of Keith Burroughs, Art teacher Chris Hull and several trainee teachers from Edge Hill University. Trainees from both the Flexible PGCE and BSc (Hons) in Design and Technology courses supported staff for the duration of the project
