At KS3, our pupils are taught about the importance of healthy eating, nutrition, a balanced diet, and about the source, seasonality and characteristics of a range of ingredients when choosing and preparing food.
They learn to become competent in the preparation and cooking of predominantly savoury and some sweet dishes as part of a healthy diet, and in a range of cooking techniques.  The department aims to instil a love of cooking that enables pupils to feed themselves and others affordably and well, now and in later life.
