Food Studies

Food Studies

Learning about food and nutrition is an important life skill that the Polygon School positively encourages.

The pupils are lucky to have a great learning environment for this subject including individual workstations for the practical lessons.

From Year 7 onwards, the pupils have one lesson of cookery per week and will learn many new skills including:

  • Food preparation
  • Planning/organisation
  • Health and safety
  • Nutrition

Pupils will cook on alternate weeks and encouraged to take home the results. As a school we believe in removing any barriers to learning, therefore, no charge is made for ingredients.


At KS4, pupils will have two lessons of cookery per week, one a theory and one a practical.

Pupils will be entered for GCSE Food and Nutrition.
