STUDENTS at Neale-Wade Community College in March created a feast fit for a king, to the delight of the builders working on the site.

The Year 11 pupils slaved in the kitchen for their final piece of GCSE Catering coursework and served up a variety of hot and hearty dishes to hungry builders on Wednesday and Thursday.

Catering teacher Zoe Clarke explained the students had to put on an event, from planning the menu and cooking the dishes to creating invitations and dressing the venue.

The students chose the Olympics as their theme and produced foods from around the world, including curry, chilli, pies and pasties.

“Some of the builders who came on the Wednesday asked if they could come back on Thursday as well,” Mrs Clarke said.

The Catering GCSE has replaced the Food Technology qualification at the school and has proved much more popular with the students, as it teaches them valuable skills they can use in later life.
