Head of Department: Mrs J Gillett

We believe that every pupil, regardless of ability or background, should expect the same quality education in every lesson taught by every teacher across our curriculum team.

The Curriculum intent of the Food department is outlined below.

  • Provide students with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to cook and apply the principles of food science, nutrition and healthy eating.
  • Encourage students to cook and instil a love of learning that inspires them to continue to GCSE and beyond.
  • Develop vital life skills that enable them to feed themselves and others affordably and nutritiously, now and later in life.
  • Raise student awareness about the world around them and explore a range of ingredients and processes from different culinary traditions (traditional British and international), to inspire new ideas or modify existing recipes
  • Have an understanding of the economic, environmental, ethical, and socio-cultural influences on food availability and production processes.
