Food Technology is an inspiring, exciting and practical subject which prepares all young people to live and work in an ever competitive world. It is about providing opportunities for students to develop their capability, combining their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding in order to create quality and aesthetic products.
The Food Technology Faculty aims to allow students to combine practical, technical and complex skills with creative thinking, enabling them to design, make and evaluate products. We aim to equip students with the skills to think creatively, be socially, morally and environmentally aware and solve problems as individuals, in pairs and as team members. Students are provided with the opportunities to develop their confidence in using a wide range of tools, equipment and food ingredients.
We have designed the food curriculum with practical skills at its centre, building resilience in the students as they progress through the core competencies.
