This week, teachers from across Bolton visited Sharples School for training and inspiration regarding the new GCSE courses in Design Technology that will be introduced into the curriculum as of 2016. Torben Steeg from STEM Education North West delivered the session and the teachers from Harper Green, Smithills, Bolton School amongst others really appreciated the input on what are major changes in the subject area. Hazel Fogg, Head of Technology at Sharples School, said "opportunities like this make sure that Sharples are always looking ahead and planning for these changes to ensure the best for our students".
