A WINCHESTER school unveiled a new state of the art classroom which has been designed to a professional kitchen standard.

Henry Beaufort School has opened the door to its new food preparation and nutrition room to offer more opportunities to students.

Sue Hearle, headteacher said: “I am so delighted we have been able to support the growing interest from our young people in food preparation and nutrition.

"This will enable us in the future to widen the range of courses available for our students and give them a taste of what it is like to work in a professional kitchen environment.”

Lucy Golding, academic leader of design and technology, added: "We are thrilled with our fantastic new facilities which will enable our students to experience cooking in a more professional environment. We are looking forward to the new opportunities it will bring for all our students, and to raising the profile of food and a love of cooking for everyone.”
