In Food we seek to develop in our students a sound understanding about food and the important role food plays in a healthy lifestyle.

We teach the basic practical cookery skills and focus particularly on Healthy Eating, Safety and Hygiene, Diet and Nutrition.

Students in Year 7, Year 8 will generally cook once a week. They will always have at least a week’s notice to enable them to source their ingredients and we will provide recipes for them to follow. Recipes are available to view on the school website.
