Food Technology

“One of the very best things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is that we are doing and devote our attention to eating.” – Luciano Pavarotti


In Year 13 students are studying the AQA A2 Design Technology Food Course. The specification has been designed to encourage candidates to take a broad view of design and technology, and food science and nutrition, to develop their capacity to design and make products and to appreciate the complex relations between design, materials, manufacture and marketing. In Year 13 students will produce 1 piece of coursework (25% of overall A Level grade) and sit one exam (25%). Students will be expected to complete coursework in study periods and to also read around the wider subject in preparation for the exam.
