Welcome to the Home Economics department


Home Economics: Food & Nutrition has become an increasingly popular choice at GCSE in recent years. This is highly encouraging for the department.

When we hear the term, ‘Home Economics’ most of us think about cooking and food. Home Economics is about much more than food.  The subject combines aspects of science, nutrition, cooking, relationships and consumerism. Students learn about the inter-relationships between diet, health, home and family, as well as the choice and management of resources.

Pupils are encouraged to achieve their full potential and prepare for life and work by acquiring knowledge, learning new transferable skills and building upon those already established in the home.
