The Food Department at Moreton School are currently celebrating record high GCSE results.
Within Food Technology, 100% of students achieved A*-C and 30% achieved A*/A. All pupils made at least expected progress with 70% also exceeding their target grades.
We have a well-equipped department which responds to the ever changing demands of the subject. The staff that specialise in GCSE Food both have a real passion for the subject, they are constantly updating their use of equipment, tools and processes as their professional practice feeds into their everyday teaching.
Students are encouraged to attend enrichment opportunities within the department. In KS3 we offer a variety of clubs with a focus on developing skills, knowledge and understanding alongside building on student’s enjoyment of the subject.
Aims of the subject
The subject calls for students to become autonomous and creative problem solvers, as individuals and members of a team. They must look for needs, wants and opportunities and respond to them by developing a range of ideas and making products and systems. They combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetics, social and environmental issues, function and industrial practices. As they do so, they reflect on and evaluate present and past design technology, its uses and effects. Through design and technology, all students can become discriminating and informed users of products, and become innovators.”
