What skills and experience we're looking for
Our students follow an academic core curriculum throughout Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. This includes the study of History, Geography and a Language as well as English, Maths and Science. However, our students also have the opportunity to do a range of practical and vocational subjects including a wide range of creative and performing arts, physical education and other humanities like Business studies, Psychology and Economics.
The Food department is a small (but growing) successful, well resourced and supportive department. The team is currently made up of 1 Full Time Head of Subject, with some lessons taught by specialists from other departments. The department is also well supported by a full time technician. The training and professional development of staff is at the core of our ethos.
With regard to the curriculum, pupils undertake Food in Year 7 and 8, for half the year. They have 1 lesson a week and lessons are structured on mastering skills and underpinning theory through practical tasks. Pupils can choose to carry on their Food studies in Year 9. It is a popular choice with 4 groups currently in Year 9.
Pupils are then able to take Food Preparation and Nutrition at GCSE as an option. The EDUQAS board is followed. Lessons are planned with the aim of bringing the subject to life and pupils are encouraged to adapt and plan practical work to their own preferences.
The Food Preparation and Nutrition department aims provide opportunities for pupils to bring learning to life, for example, running competitions, hosting cooking clubs, running a pop up restaurant and actively searching for opportunities and visits for pupils to get involved with, both inside and outside the classroom.
