One of the essential life skills is being able to feed ourselves.
To this end we offer our students food skills and food technology. This is taught from year 7 through to year 11.
At KS4 the students are offered a choice of two courses to follow.
Jamie Oliver cooking skills; teaches the students advanced cooking skills and introduces them to experiment with products and tastes they would not normally encounter. They also learn budgeting,shopping, and planning meals.
At GCSE the students learn to design, make and develop cooked products for a client other than themselves. This is taught as a practical, through AQA and along with the written coursework, has a theory exam at the end of the year.
