  • Year 7 Hospitality and Catering Overview

    In Year 7 we aim to provide students with the opportunity to learn about food commodities, healthy eating, working safely and food hygiene. 

    We also focus on planning meals and cooking dishes, using local and seasonal ingredients wherever possible, in order to reduce food miles and source ingredients economically. 

    We cook a selection of dishes where we encourage students to confidently learn practical skills and gain independence whilst working with food.
