Cookery is taught to all year 7 students at Carre’s in the fabulous Nutrition Suite. The purpose built room, situated on the first floor above the Fitness Suite, is very well-appointed with modern gas and electric ovens, stainless steel work units, a full range of equipment and ample refrigerator space.

Scheme of work

the whole academic year students have a one-hour cookery lesson each week. They make a wide range of dishes to develop home cooking skills and learn about food safety and hygiene, healthy eating and consumer awareness. The cultural importance of food is also acknowledged; previously students have celebrated events such as British Food Fortnight and Chinese New Year.

Extracurricular activities

In addition to the year 7 lessons students are encouraged to enter competitions including the Rotary Young Chef and House Cookery.
