Food Preparation & Nutrition

Food preparation and Nutrition is an exciting and creative course, which focuses on nurturing students' practical cookery skills to give them a strong understanding of nutrition. 


The curriculum covers five key concepts: food nutrition and health, food science, food safety, food choice and food provenance. Students will have the opportunity to explore food nutrition and health during key stage 3 and key stage 4, with a focus on the nutritional value of ingredients, how to make healthy choices and how to cook nutritional meals. 


Every kid in every 

school no matter their 

background, deserves 

to learn the basics 

about food.

Food safety forms an integral part of every practical lesson, with students ensuring their food is stored, prepared and cooked to high standards of food safety and food hygiene.


Throughout the curriculum, strong links are forged with subjects such as science, geography, PSHE and physical education. Students will explore the impact of global warming, issues of food sustainability, where food originally comes from and how it is produced, as well as analysing food choice and why people choose to eat what they eat.
