Food Technology is a popular subject throughout our school

While learning how to prepare, cook and serve a variety of dishes, our students develop a sound understanding about food and nutrition; showing their understanding of the important role it plays in a full and healthy life.

We encourage students to be independent learners, creative thinkers and team workers throughout their studies. It is equally important to enjoy the subject.
Instilling a love of ingredients, flavour and learning techniques which ultimately results in creating that perfect dish! This is what gives our pupils so much pride and joy in what they do.

GCSE Food Technology

Each year group works through different progressive modules which enhances their understanding of all areas of food preparation and nutrition; from food provenance to nutrition, advertising and food science. The classes study Food Technology for half an academic year.
The nutrition work is woven through the practical and food science activities to enable the pupils understanding to develop. Finding out about 'the why something happens' in apractial way is quite magical.

During the course, the groups are given an investigative task to complete and they then have to choose practical activities to support their investigations. the groups are given an investigative task to complete and then they have to choose practical activities to support their investigations.

This style of teaching and learning eases the pupils into the GCSE course, AQA Food Preparation and Nutrition.

We organise visits to the markets and international food shops, local artisan bakers, local farms and food producers. We also invite speakers and demonstrators into school to show the students their skills.

An offshoot of this very exciting course are the Summer and Easter cookery schools, where children come and cook three course meals based on a theme or a particular country.

Your choice. Their future.
