Catering & Food

Curriculum Intent

The Food curriculum in both KS3 and KS4 is aimed at inspiring students to enjoy and understand food, in preparing, cooking, and eating a variety of savoury and sweet dishes.

Students are encouraged to develop their confidence, independence, and capability in the kitchen environment. It is imperative that our students can learn crucial life skills and learn about nutrition.

In KS4, students will build on prior knowledge and understanding of nutrition, healthy eating, food preparation, hygiene, cooking techniques, and sensory characteristics in greater detail. The Hospitality and Catering course at KS4 provides an opportunity to learn about issues related to social, moral and environmental problems with a core focus on nutrition and food safety and how they affect successful hospitality and catering operations.

Students have the opportunity to develop a range of transferable skills of problem-solving, organisation and time management, planning and communication. All of these key skills work toward solving real life problems.
