Food at Fallibroome is a popular subject and enjoyed by all students. The emphasis is on developing student’s practical skills and their understanding of food as part of a healthy diet. All students have the opportunity to study Food at KS3. At KS4 students can opt to study GCSE Food Preparation & Nutrition. At present we do not offer an A level qualification in this subject however, students can opt for the popular “Grub on a Grant” course as part of the Sixth form Curriculum Enrichment Programme.

However, pupils are asked to bring;

  • Ingredients (dates can be found in the recipe book)
