The Year 7 Learning Journey Starts Here....
Year 7 in News and Pictures
Unsure on what you should be reading to help with your class work or homework? Stuck with what you need in class.....
Here you will hopefully find that information to help you.
Please find below a list of suggestions from many of our subjects on what you could read to improve your knowledge and understanding.
Food Preparation and Nutrition
In Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8), all students will have food lessons where they are taught about healthy eating, where food comes from, food safety and how to prepare a range of healthy (mainly savoury) dishes.
Parents are expected to provide ingredients and students are tasked with weighing and measuring them before coming to school as their homework for the week. We've chosen dishes which are reasonably priced to make - but some help to provide ingredients can be given to Pupil Premium students.
The recipe booklet for KS3 is attached. Lists of ingredients, along with the dates your child will be cooking, will also appear on the Show my Homework website. Failure to bring ingredients will impact on a student's 'Attitude to Learning' score.
Great care is taken to ensure that food is prepared safely and hygienically. We are a 'nut-free' zone and will also take account of any other food intolerances, allergies or other factors affecting food choice (eg religious or moral beliefs) by making changes to the recipes. As students become more confident, we also actively encourage them to adapt recipes to suit the tastes of their families.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact us in the Technology Department.

The Relax Kids Chill Skills Programme
The Relax Kids Chill Skills programme has been specifically devised to help enhance learning potential, improve confidence and develop emotional literacy, equipping young people with the tools to manage their mood, emotion and behaviour in a positive way. Regular relaxation and self esteem sessions can also raise achievement and improve exam results.
