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?

Y9 students were invited to breakfast today. They all had an excellent year and are great role models! Miss Robins enjoyed hearing about career aspirations: dentist, lawyer, journalist, actor, teacher(we hope at #TeamGraham!), B&B proprietor and plans to go to university! 🥐👏🤩 pic.twitter.com/6TGx…
