Corporate Partnership with Axminster Tools and Machinery
The school has forged links with Axminster Tools and Machinery in order to support our talented Design and Technology students. The local business has a very experienced engineering department and Dave Foden has been working with Colyton students for the last six months.
His work has involved appraising students' work for exams, discussing projects, and best practice. Students are extremely grateful for this ongoing support as they progress through their A Level. They will continue to receive mentoring and professional guidance from the business as Dave, D&T staff and the students have discussed plans for the year ahead.
Jason W in Year 12 explains the benefits this partnership has: “D&T is more than just designing and building products; Axminster Tools & Machinery has been helping us improve communication and creative skills beyond what the A-level course offers.”
Colyton Grammar School is establishing a network of corporate supporters that will enhance the experiences that the students receive at the school.
