Y6 Open Evening
Families are welcomed to visit our department and talk to pupils and staff about our current curriculum.
Food & Textiles
Experience GCSE and A-Level Innovation at its best at our annual Technology exhibition. On 4th January 2018 we held our annual Design and Technology Show. This displayed all the A level Product Design and Textiles work and promoted our newly launched Level 3 Diploma in Food Science. This year we expanded the display into two further rooms to include all of last year’s GCSE coursework pieces. The department staff welcomed an overwhelming number of past students, current students, parents, staff and governors to the evening. The refreshments had been made by the current GCSE food group and were gratefully received by all who attended. We look forward to holding a similar event next year and look forward to seeing many of you there.

Dresses for Charity Y10 Textiles
In Year 10 students were asked to make a pillowcase dress using a basic pattern for ‘Dress a Girl Around the World’
Dress a Girl Around the World is a Campaign under Hope 4 Women International (a 501 (c) 3 organization) bringing dignity to women around the world since 2006.
‘We dream of a world in which every girl has at least one new dress. We want girls to know that they are worthy of respect, and that they are loved by God.’
The Rotary Young Chef Competition
The Rotary Young Chef Competition is a well-established and successful competition organised and promoted by Rotary International and is open to all students in full-time education between the ages of 11 and 17. The competition aims to encourage young people to gain a multitude of skills such as food hygiene, presentation, organisation and planning.
Serving up Success for Chef Final
Freya Evill in Year 10 competed in the final of the Rotary Young Chef Competition on Tuesday 6th February along with many food enthusiasts across the Midlands. Freya was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Stafford.
She had to plan, prepare and cook a 3 course meal for two people in two hours. Freya served up a starter of Pea Soup with Parmesan Crisp, a main course of Chicken Bacon and Leek Pasta Bake, followed by a dessert of Apple and Cinnamon Crumble with Clotted Cream.
As a school we’re very proud of Freya’s achievements. Gill Hughes from the Stafford Rotary Club commented on how attractive and delicious her food looked. Freya said, “This was a very exciting experience, even though I was nervous at first, I soon felt comfortable and determined to complete all three courses within the time limit provided. Although I didn’t win in the second heat, I am happy I took part in the Young Chef competition.”
