Inspiring a love of learning

“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

Food

Love food?

Like creating great food for your friends and family? If you choose Food Technology will learn about designing and making a saleable, quality food product by applying your growing knowledge and understanding of the world of food.

Course Outline

You will explore and develop a range of food products in Year 10 like pastry products and continental breads. The aim is to encourage you to be creative and develop new, exciting products building on what you have learnt at KS3.

You will be expected to use ICT throughout your work and there is a greater emphasis on skill acquisition and making quality products at this level in Food Technology.

You will learn about:-

A) Food Materials and Components

C) Food Processes and Manufacture

The scheme of assessment is made up of two parts:-

i) Written paper – 2 hours which is 40% of the total marks
ii) Controlled Assessment – 45 hours which is 60% of the total marks

The coursework project is undertaken in Y11 and is a very important piece of work. The themes for this are set by the exam board.
