Year 10 Food Preparation and Nutrition students recently took part in a bake off competition held at Gateshead College. This competition was opened up to many schools across the North East. In the run up to the competition Joanne Rogan, Catering lecturer from Gateshead College visited Lord Lawson to do a cake decorating demonstration which the students found very valuable. The year 10 students then got to practice making and decorating cakes in food lessons.

Ryan Summers and Georgia Williams both made it through to the final round. The day was very intense with top chefs from local hotels, present to judge. Our students were resilient and responsible and Mrs Stephenson who assisted them said she was super proud. The judges said it was a tough call as all contestants had done really well but our fabulous Georgia Williams managed to win second prize and was awarded £100 Metro centre vouchers. All students also received a certificate commending them for their efforts and runners up received a £20 voucher.
