Food and Catering is a varied and exciting subject, which prepares pupils for independent living and the world of work. Anyone who visits our food lessons will confirm that we have a vibrant and enthusiastic environment and provide an irresistible, challenging and engaging curriculum.
Most of our learning is carried out through practical work. We focus on developing cookery skills, the functions of ingredients, food science and nutrition. Students in Food are very proud of their work and love to win our very coveted ‘Chef of the Week’ award.
This subject develops both teamwork and independent skills. It requires learners to manage their time and space correctly, think ‘outside the box’ and start to consider what potential consumers want to eat.
Pupil progress in this subject is excellent and they really enjoy the practical nature of their learning.
