AQA Food Preparation & Nutrition

 

Design & Technology is well recognised as the area where connections are made between many other subjects within the modern curriculum, and where students can develop their higher-level thinking skills and become more independent learners.  Our students are encouraged to question and take risks with their designing, whilst developing a sound base of practical skills and understanding of the knowledge that underpins successful practical work.

At Key Stage 3 Design & Technology is taught in specialist rooms with modern equipment. In Textiles the work is project-based and of a "Design and Make" nature, allowing a considerable amount of freedom of expression and projects are chosen to reflect the girls' interests.  In Food Technology students cook a wide variety of dishes, often linked to current healthy eating guidelines and are challenged to adapt recipes to their own designs.

All students in Key Stage 3 study Design and Technology on a ten to twelve week rotation.

Students in Key Stage 4 may choose to study GCSE Food Preparation & Nutrition
