Welcome to Chaigeley School

Food Technology KS3

The focus of food technology at Chaigeley is to create independent learners who have the confidence and skills to look after themselves and their families for the rest of their lives.

Learners will acquire a wide range of practical skills and develop their knowledge about healthy eating, food hygiene and safety, the importance of nutrition to health, economical shopping, and the effects of cultural and moral issues on food choices.


They will learn about meal planning, team work, the vocational aspects of the hospitality and catering industry; they will also be given the opportunity to access a range of qualification in this area of the curriculum.

Food Technology KS4

At Key Stage 4 pupils have access to a range of qualifications in this subject.


These include BTEC Level 1 & 2 Awards in Home Cooking Skills – which encourage pupils to learn new skills and/or develop the skills to create home cooked meals from scratch (not from convenience foods!) and investigate ways to prepare and shop for foods economically.

Pupils also have the opportunity to complete BTEC Level 1 Awards in Basic Cooking Skills.
