In Key Stage 3 students will learn about Healthy Eating, Food Hygiene and Safety. They will gain practical skills and knowledge to enable them to cook a variety of sweet and savoury dishes.

These dishes will develop their cooking skills and include muffins, sweet & sour chicken, pasta sauce and shortbread to name a few. They will be taught a range of research and design skills and be taught how to use a variety of specialist equipment.

Subject Aim:

  • To engage students in a rewarding practical subject that is concerned with all aspects of how we live and is linked to our intellectual, emotional and physical needs.
  • To offer opportunities which are fun, practical, challenging and rewarding.
  • To develop a range of designing and making skills which are readily transferrable to higher level study, apprenticeships or the world of work.

Celebrating Success:

  • Fantastic range of opportunities to work with materials and equipment.
  • Brand new suite of fully equipped specialist rooms.
  • Opportunity to enter local cooking competitions. On previous occasions Marriotts have won the Stevenage heat.
