Food Preparation and Nutrition
The food preparation and nutrition department teaches Key Stage 3 cooking skills, paired with knowledge of nutrients which allows all students to follow a healthy diet.
In Year 7, students make a range of recipes starting with crudités and ending with their own flavoured and designed bread rolls. In Year 8, students travel around the world, learning about food provenance and environmental issues within the food industry, as well as cooking authentic dishes such as vegetable kung pao and Italian ravioli.
In Key Stage 4, students are taught the Food Preparation and Nutrition course; they learn a variety of high skill cooking techniques as well as in depth knowledge behind the science of cooking food.
Miss Bowles is Head of Food Preparation and Nutrition. Other members of staff are Miss Webber-Aucutt and Mrs K Vickery.
