‘To develop a positive relationship with food with a confidence to use a range of ingredients creatively.’

‘To develop life skills for the future’

Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Food technology introduces students to Safety & Hygiene, Nutrition and Healthy Eating in a way that is easy for them to remember.  Students develop a wide range of practical skills as well as those of organisation, management of time, and weighing and measuring.  They design their own products, which become more complex year-on-year, and learn how to evaluate, taste and test products whilst being encouraged to express their own opinions.

Students carry out research to help them with the development and production of new items and to show creativity in their own designs.  They are also encouraged to look at the effects of different cultures on food choices.
