Food and Nutrition

All girls participate in Food and Nutrition lessons in the first two years, rotating with Art, Drama, DT, Textiles and Music. In Upper 4, students may chose to study the subject further. 

Lessons are action-packed, with theory often focusing on the science of cooking: the “why does that work?” approach being a key and fascinating element of the theory.

Pupils have many practical lessons in which they will prepare and cook a wide range of dishes from scratch such as sushi, curries from various cuisines, classic desserts from around the world as well as a solid grounding in bread and pastry work. 

Studying Food and Nutrition in Key Stage 3 not only gives the pupils a solid grounding for the GCSE course, it gives them the confidence and the skills to cook delicious, nutritious dishes as an important life skill.
