Home Economics

Home Economics at Key Stage 3 is part of Learning for Life and Work. In Years 8, 9 and 10 pupils get the opportunity to examine key concepts in relation to healthy eating, home and family life and independent living.  Year 8, 9 and 10 is divided into a series of units which are designed to be enjoyable, challenging and relevant for our pupils.  A wide range of practical cookery is built into each unit of work so that pupils can develop a range of important skills such as working with others, problem solving, cooking skills and using equipment.
