The Food department aims to stimulate a love of learning and a love of cooking healthy meals. We strive to ensure that all students make good progress and enjoy learning, becoming independent learners who have developed key skills and understand what prospects there are for further study and careers involving the many facets of the food technology, catering, hospitality and food science sectors.
At Prince William school we strongly believe that every child should have the opportunity to be able to cook a wide range of dishes; from treats and bakes to healthy snacks and family meals. Each child is encouraged to be involved in the preparation of the recipe, shopping list and labelling of ingredients for their practical lesson
