As a result, they rapidly develop pupil's emotional well-being, willingness to learn, social and life skills, behaviour for learning and academic progress.

The position is based on their KS3 site and Food Technology is viewed as a vital part of the school's curriculum enrichment process. The role at its simplest is cooking for the whole school each day (60-65 people), with a short 45 minute cooking session with 4 pupils each afternoon.
