What will I be studying?
This new GCSE in Food Preparation and Nutrition is an exciting and creative course which focuses on practical cooking skills to ensure students develop a thorough understanding of nutrition, food provenance and the working characteristics of food materials. This new course is suitable for any student who enjoys working with food and is interested in all aspects of the food industry, enjoys solving creative problems and who is able to work individually and as part of a team. At its heart, this qualification focuses on nurturing students’ practical cookery skills to give them a strong understanding of nutrition. Food preparation skills are integrated into five core topics: Food, Nutrition & Health, Food Science, Food Safety, Food Choice and Food Provenance.
What can I do after wards?
Beyond GCSE there are good opportunities in many different fields of work and higher education such as: hospitality and catering; food technologist; food manufacturing; food scientists and microbiologists; teaching; food retail; or food photography and journalism.

The year 7s attended a basketball tournament last night at Scalby School. Overall it was a very promising performance from the boys that attended. For some of them this was their first time playing basketball and they all thoroughly enjoyed taking part. #TeamGraham pic.twitter.com/tfV8…
