Food Technology

Winner of the Good Schools Guide Award for Excellence

At Key Stage 3, girls are taught Food and Nutrition and Textiles in our custom-built Home Economics block. The Key Stage 3 scheme of work has been developed to teach students:

  • Where food comes from
  • How to cook a range of dishes safely and hygienically
  • Healthy eating
  • The factors that affect food choice, food availability and food waste
  • Consumer issues
  • Food and its’ functions
  • New technologies
  • Trends in food

Practical lessons take place regularly and a weekly Cookery Club supports this.

At GCSE level both Food and Nutrition and Child Development are offered.  The practical element and high level of controlled assessment (60%) make these popular choices

Our aim is to do the very best to ensure that every pupil has an enjoyable and fulfilling time in this subject by instilling a love of cooking whilst  learning vital life skills.
