Food & Nutrition
The intent of our Food and Nutrition curriculum is to teach students how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating. We aim to instil a love of cooking in our students opening the door to one of the greatest expressions of human creativity. Learning how to cook is a crucial life skill that enables students to feed themselves and others affordably and well, now and in later life.
Throughout the curriculum we focus on food choice - students develop an understanding of the social, cultural, economic, ethical, moral, environmental, and technological factors that influence an individual’s food choice. Students learn about multicultural foods and experience how different cultural foods have influenced our everyday food choices. Students are also encouraged to develop a wider understanding of the environmental impacts of our food choices and why there should be more encouragement to buy local, seasonal produce and reduce food waste.
The department has a strong focus and drive to develop independent learners promoting high standards of academic achievement through an engaging practical curriculum. Students are encouraged to apply their knowledge and understanding of nutrition, food provenance and the working properties of ingredients through the preparation, cooking, and evaluation of a variety of dishes. The department has a strong belief that all students should be independent, equipping them with the knowledge and cultural capital to succeed in life. Students are encouraged to develop personal responsibility, self-motivation and to consider the needs of others.
