Leeds West Academy


Trinity Kitchen Competition

Leeds West Academy students have been tasked with creating a concept for a street food stand at Trinity Kitchen, with an allocated budget of £20,000. Groups of five will invent three different plates for a menu, before competing against other Leeds schools.

Behind the competition are Land Securities, the largest commercial property company in the United Kingdom and developer of Trinity Leeds. Trinity Kitchen is situated within the famous Leeds shopping centre and comprises a mix of unique street food stands, inspired by different cultures and trends.

The Trinity Kitchen Challenge commenced with a launch event at Leeds West Academy. Staff working in various areas at Trinity Leeds informed the students about the products sold at Trinity Kitchen, providing guidance and inspiration ahead of the competition.

Students are now working in teams to develop a product and business case. These will be presented and pitched at an in-school event for teachers who will select a winning team, qualifying for the finale in March. At the challenge finale the school’s chosen team will present their contending menu against four other teams.
