Dear Parent

Design the Jaguar of the future, in partnership with Stratstone Jaguar.

As you may be aware, pupils have been invited to take part in the above competition which challenges them to create what they consider may be the Jaguar of the future. The winner of each of the two age groups will be invited to the Jaguar design and production facilities in Coventry later in the year.

The competition has two age groups; up to and including Year 8, and Years 9 and 10 combined. Entrants are asked to submit their design ideas to the school in the first instance, with the best three from each age group being judged at Stratstone’s Jaguar dealership towards the end of June. As well as the six finalists, every entrant to the competition will be invited to the dealership for the judging.

Pupils can work alone, or in groups, and can submit their designs in any manner they wish. Some pupils have expressed an interest in producing an advertising poster, while others are thinking about making models. There has even been talk of an animation from Year 10! The choice of display method is entirely free, but the need to be able to display it needs to be borne in mind. Pupils are also encouraged to seek the advice from older family members as they are the ones with motoring experience, and they could offer valuable insights in to how any designs might progress.

If your child is interested in taking part in this design competition, they can start working on their submission straight away, but they do need to let me know that they do wish to enter so that reminders of deadlines can be given, as well as providing an advanced indication of numbers for the presentation evening.

Should your child wish to take part in this event, please could they fill in the slip below and return it to school. If you have any questions about this or any other event that the school takes part in, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully

Mr S Wilkinson

Head of Design Technology
