OUR AIMS

The Design Technology curriculum at Up Holland High School is structured to provide a modern and innovative learning experience that allows students opportunities to learn about contemporary technologies, materials and processes, as well as established practices.

Up Holland High School offers students two lessons a week in Design Technology on a carousel system which incorporates one session in Hospitality and Catering in Year 7 & 8 and two in year 9. Each carousel is designed to embed knowledge and skills that help them understand and apply the principles of nutrition and health.

Lessons are designed to enable them to cook a repertoire of predominantly savoury dishes so that they are able to feed themselves and others a healthy and varied diet. Students become competent in a range of cooking techniques [for example, selecting and preparing ingredients; using utensils and electrical equipment; applying heat in different ways; using awareness of taste, texture and smell to decide how to season dishes and combine ingredients; adapting and using their own recipes]. Each carousel in Hospitality & Catering allows students to understand the source, seasonality and characteristics of a broad range of ingredients whilst enhancing and developing on prior learning.
