GIRLS’ COLLEGE

Hospitality Activity Days

The hospitality activity for school students is a day out for your Food Technology/Hospitality/Catering students to gain an insight into the real world of Hospitality. We operate on a commercial basis using an industrial kitchen. It gives students a flavour of what this industry is all about.

When do they take place?

The Hospitality Activity for school students takes place on Fridays during term time. Specific dates can be negotiated between Lakefield and the school.

Who are they for?

As we are a single sex educational establishment we can only run activity days for girls aged 14 – 18.

How will the day benefit my students?

  • Opportunities for team work
  • Learn skills that you may not have time for in the classroom: piping, modelling, embossing
  • Open horizons to the broad expanse of jobs available in the Hospitality industry.
  • The importance of eating as a social event and Etiquette as a future skill
  • A chance to taste and smell unusual ingredients and become familiar with them
  • The life skill of changing your own bed sheets and making your own bed!

How much does it cost?

We charge £2/head for lunch
