On Thursday 21st May, the Design Technology Department will be hosting the regional Young Chefs Competition 2015, which is run by the University of Leeds School of Hospitality. This year it is operated in association with the Hilton City Hotel in Leeds.

Last week Mrs. Hartley took three Year 11 Food Technology students to the Hilton to present their final menu to the Head Chef and Judges from the University, with six other Leeds schools.

The participating schools and our students (Shannon Lister, Beth Duffy and Kaitlan Liley) will be competing in the live final at Leeds West Academy on Thursday next week, with coverage from regional BBC news programme Look North.

Mrs. Hartley said: "The students have really done the Academy proud. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students and the school community. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Chrissy Bowe for all of her efforts in preparation for the event."

We wish all contestants the very best and look forward to seeing the results on Thursday 21st May.
