Year 11 Food Exam

Today our Year 11 Food students prepared a 3 course meal in exam conditions.  They have been working on this for months and we are delighted that they showed commitment and enthusiasm to show how much they have learned in this time.

Mrs Brunt writes:

What a positive experience the practical exam has been. The food room was a pocketful of energy in the school today!
We have had lots of visitors- Mr Thornhill, Mrs Richtoff and Mrs Baran to name a few who have been bowled over by the skills shown and the amazing dishes produced today. The students have worked so hard and with positivity and enthusiasm. Joshua F said his feet were on fire at the end and Alicia W was wearing sparkling sliders for comfort!
The results you may agree are of a really high standard and there was a real sense of achievement and satisfaction.
They were a real credit to the school. A special thanks to Mrs Rhodes who has as aver gone above and beyond.

Mrs King, director of learning for Technologies agrees:

I was blown away by the quality of the food that the year 11s produced in their practical exam today!

Thank you and well done to everyone involved.
