Home Economics (BGE)

Home Economics focuses on health and food. Pupils are given the opportunity through a number of different units of work to develop essential life skills to allow them to thrive independently out with the school community from budgeting to organisational skills, and gain valuable skills for the world of work.

As a department we create a positive and enjoyable environment in which pupils at all stages can enjoy both practical and theoretical classes. Courses are designed to challenge all pupils giving them the opportunity to achieve their full potential. The department supports and adds value to the pupils’ overall experience at school.
