Many of our Year 10 Hospitality & Catering students pulled together a great gesture to staff in producing Christmas Afternoon Tea in the shape of ‘homemade’ sandwiches, cakes, biscuits, all presented in a smart box.

The £2 cost was well worthwhile and there was real care and enthusiasm form every student involved; Maddie Arrowsmith, Lewis Blackford, Harleigh Bridges, Eleanor Cardwell, Corey Challoner, Robert Crowther, Amy Fowler, Daniel Gibbons, Any Greensill, Mear Haynes, Elena Hill, Emily Jeffery, Grace Lee-Sinclair, Jake Litherland, Josh Litherland, Tom Patstone, Coy Payne, Ethan Porter, Jack Sandel, Emily Shelley, Ella Thompson, Aaliyah Tuckley, Amy Twinney and Katie Wykes.

The project was very much about getting the students to think about presenting, combinations, range and to consider the ‘afternoon tea’ theme..

Matt Allman, Headteacher, said: “I was met by a smiling Mear and Grace at my classroom door asking if I wanted the afternoon tea and it was delivered to my office. Thankfully the latest government announcements on school-led test and trace through Xmas, and remote learning and mass school testing in January, means all the planning will burn of the pounds before the Xmas dinner.”
