Opened in September 2010, our light and airy cooking suite provides facilities for groups of up to 14 students to learn and cook together. Highlights of the well-equipped suite include electric ovens, gas hobs and a video/TV demonstration facility.
As well as being used for lessons the suite is home to a number of different enrichment cookery programmes.
