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.

Year 7 Cookery Club

Is delivered by Ms Hathaway and is held after school on a Wednesday evening between 3.40pm - 5.45pm.

Courses run for 5 or 6  weeks each half term.  Students provide their own ingredients to create a range of savoury and sweet dishes. Ingredients required for all of the recipes featured can be found below. They are listed in alphabetical order and students will learn each week what they will be cooking the following week.

Students may store ingredients in the cookery suite before form period on the day of their session, using the fridge for fresh ingredients if needed.

Ms Hathaway works with form teachers to recruit attendees. When there are available spaces students will be invited to apply through their form tutor. 

There is no charge to attend cookery club. The club is funded by contributions made to the school enrichment fund.
