As you are aware your son/daughter has chosen to study, Level 2 Hospitality and Catering, as part of their GCSE studies.
To make it more convenient for parents and guardians, the catering department have a scheme set up, where we will purchase ingredients on your behalf. Many parents find being part of the scheme is more convenient and cheaper than purchasing their own ingredients.
I have calculated the cost of the recipes for Year 10, which will be £35.00. This will cover your child for the academic year. As well as your payment, students will also be conducting many food experiments and possibly cooking for college events, all paid for by the college.
If you wish for the catering department to purchase ingredients on your behalf, please pay the first instalment, or in full, via Parent Pay. It will be very challenging this year due to Covid restrictions for students to bring in their own ingredients.
I thank you for your continued support and if you would like to discuss alternative methods of payment, please contact the finance team, at the college.
Mrs K Laity
