In 2013 Chef Raymond Blanc opened our state-of-the-art teaching kitchen to be exclusively used to teach children how to cook all types of food. The children have access to induction cooking hobs, ovens that have the doors fold back in to the body to ensure the safety of the children. There are also infrared taps enabling the children to wash their hands properly and seamless resin floors with antibactericide to ensure a hygienic environment for the children.
The kitchen is now used for a wide range of lessons and after school clubs allowing pupils to learn how to cook a wide range of foods from all over the world as well as cooking in different styles from throughout history going as far back as the Egyptians and Romans. Some of the years 6s have also made their own cooking series on YouTube so that they can share what they have learnt in their lessons.
Our teaching chef, Joe Grollman, researches all the topics and leads the classes in the kitchen as well as leading the afterschool clubs.
