Food Technology

“I feel a recipe is only a theme, which an intelligent cook can play each time with a variation.” –  Madam Benoit

The teaching is outstanding. Teachers know their students very well and fine-tune lessons to make sure everyone learns very rapidly, whatever level they are starting. – See more at: http://northgate.northants.sch.uk/our-school/curriculum/food-technology#sthash.bVOEdbX0.dpuf

The objectives to be addressed in KS3 come under the following headings:

  • Exploring ideas and the task
  • Generating ideas
  • Developing and modelling ideas
  • Planning
  • Evaluating
  • Making high quality products

In KS4 pupils will be working towards a variety of accredited courses which will be suited to their individual needs and ability.

We are able to offer pupils a range of cooking opportunities throughout the school week e.g. after school cookery clubs, Parent and pupil evening cooking sessions.

The Food Technology room offers pupils an opportunity to learn basic food skills, food safety, hygiene and home management skills.

Each class follows a scheme of work which is carefully designed to ensure that they enjoy working with food and learn about nutrition and healthy eating to promote a healthy lifestyle.
