One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”  Luciano Pavarotti

The Food and Nutrition department have a passion for ensuring that students leave the school with the ability to cook for themselves as well as being aware of the need to be less wasteful and sustainable with food. In lessons students work on developing key practical skills, use of equipment and functions of ingredients. This is completed through a range of practical and food experimental lessons.

Outside the classroom

There are opportunities to hone skills by undertaking the Leith’s Toolbox and Confident Cook courses, get creative in a cooking club and or take part in our regular competitions- could you create a showstopper worthy of Bake Off? There are also a number of cross-curricular activities available to students,  such as International Cooking and also a Classics and Food trip to Italy.
