GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition is an exciting course that focuses on practical cooking skills to ensure students develop an in-depth understanding of nutrition, food provenance and the working characteristics of ingredients.
Year 10 is centred around developing students’ practical skills and confidence in the kitchen. The students will study food, nutrition and health, food science and food safety. They will also have the opportunity to practice non-exam assessment style projects in preparation for their final year examinations. Homework is set once a week to support the theory covered in class, to help build on practical skills at home, and develop their exam technique.
In Year 11, students will use all the skills and knowledge developed in Year 10 to produce their Food Investigation Task (NEA1) and their Food Preparation Task (NEA2) in which they can showcase their array of culinary techniques! Before, finally completing their summer written exam.
