We believe that learning to cook is a valuable life skill which every pupil should acquire.
The topics covered in Food Tech are practical and skills based. They develop the knowledge and understanding of food whilst learning the skills and techniques of basic cookery.
The topics covered include food safety, use of equipment, healthy eating, foods from different cultures as well as basic cookery skills.
