Food & Nutrition

Learning to cook is a crucial life skill that enables students to feed themselves and others affordably and well, now and in later life.

During Key Stage 3 students will understand the principles of nutrition and health and apply this by cooking a repertoire of savoury dishes. This will allow them to become competent in a range of cooking techniques and understand the source, seasonality and characteristics of a broad range of ingredients.

There is a written examination paper at the end of the course as well as two assessments, a food science investigation and food preparation
