One of our Fifth Formers has combined his GCSE Design & Technology skills with a passion for fitness training and built a weights bench from scratch at home, complete with safety bars for the weights.

He says: “I designed and made this bench to give me a goal to work towards, knowing that I would be able to maintain my fitness and strength during quarantine before I can get back in the gym”.

He has always loved designing and making things, and the lockdown has given him a chance to combine two things that he loves, design and sport, in his own home.

His choices for Sixth Form at Downside this September are Design, Physical Education and Business Studies.
