Practical details:

Each week, Year 9 and Year 10 will complete a practical lesson on a Monday.

The recipes follow the suggested requirements from the OCR exam board.

Policy for ingredients:

If a pupils forgets/fails to bring in ingredients they will complete written work. If surplus ingredients are available the pupil will be able to cook, however, this cannot be guaranteed. School stocks a small number of pantry ingredients (oil/flour etc.) but does not regularly stock fresh produce (meat/vegetables etc.).

Some weeks the school will provide the ingredients, however, most of the time pupils are expected to provide it. Check the website for details. Any problems with obtaining ingredients please see Mrs Cooke/Mrs Bond ASAP.

Each week there will be a suggested recipe link. However, pupils are able to adapt the recipe or find another that suits them/their family.
