    Department Profile

    Mrs S Taylor BA (Hons) – Head of Department 

    Mrs L D Lewis BA (Hons.)

    Mrs K McDowell – Technician

    As a department we are always available to offer help and advice to pupils, who often come along to discuss recipes they have chosen for controlled assessment or products they have made at home. The room is modern promoting an excellent working environment which leads to high quality outcomes and positive working relationships. Pupils are encouraged to develop a wide skill base and keep up with current food trends and issues such as the rise of obesity in children, dashboard dinning and the luxury meal market.

    Cross-curricular Links

    Food links with many other subjects in the school from the basics such as weighing and measuring linking to maths to the use of language linking to English when the controlled assessment is completed. In Key Stage 5 a chemistry teacher is part of the teaching team so we have very close links with science.
