Years 7, 8 & 9
Students are taught one single lesson of Product Design, Graphic Design and Food Technology in Years 7 to 9. Food is an essential element of society coupled with the increasing need to feed our growing population it is coming more to the forefront in our society’s needs. Specialists in the field of food will be needed now and in the future to enhance and develop techniques and processes. This will allow for sustainable food production and promote the need to eat a healthy diet, which will assist in the general health of the nation and the world. As a department, we also actively encourage our students to demonstrate their ability further by entering the Rotary Club Young Chef of the year. At Key Stage 3 there is an emphasis on practical work, and at the end of year 9, all students are capable of carrying out many practical skills safely, hygienically and to a very high standard, which is an essential life skill. To further enhance and maximise the learning experience we as also ensure that as much cross – curricular items as possible are covered with regards Science, Maths, English and PSHE.
