Food & Nutrition

All girls participate in Food and Nutrition lessons in the first two years, rotating with Art, Drama, DT, Textiles and Music. In Upper 4, students may chose to study the subject further.  Lessons are action packed with many being practically based. All pupils prepare and cook a wide range of dishes and develop new skills, whilst advancing their knowledge and understanding of the subject.

Food and Nutrition is a popular option at GCSE and pupils can also study the subject at ‘A’level. We also offer sixth form pupils the opportunity to complete the Tante Marie ‘essential skills’ practical cookery course which allows them to work as a chalet girl in their gap year. It also contributes towards the skills section of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
