Manchester High School for Girls

Food and Textiles Technology

Our students get creative in Food and Textiles Technology classes where they develop ideas, plan and produce products and evaluate them.

The projects undertaken at all key stages enable girls to refine their research and investigation skills as well as using recording methods that are appropriate to intentions.

The lessons and homework assignments provide the scope for innovative and imaginative outcomes, rewarding flair and inspiration, and reflecting the contemporary use of materials and information technology.

Our lessons are enriched with professional food demonstrations and trips, cookery competitions and much more.

A key element of Food and Textiles Technology is to encourage the girls to recognise the contribution they can make to meeting human needs and the environment through careful consideration and selection of sustainable resources.

Girls are encouraged to make choices with food, which are healthy and in line with recommended guidelines, and to be aware of issues with health and diet.
