Year 9 Hospitality Students visit Leeds City College

Year 9 Hospitality and Catering students recently visited Leeds City College, where they delved into the world of hospitality and catering through a pizza-making taster session and a tour of the college’s diverse departments.

With aprons tied and rolling pins at the ready, our aspiring young chefs stepped into the bustling culinary space at Leeds City College. In a session led by a college lecturer, they kneaded dough, stretched and shaped their pizza and topped their creations with an array of ingredients. Students practised using a peel to place the pizzas in the deck ovens and then to retrieve them, which is much harder than it looks! The end result? Fabulous slices of pizza that vanished quicker than you could say “buon appetito!”

The students embarked on a whirlwind tour, exploring the huge range of departments within the college. The teachers and students they encountered along the way eagerly shared insights that brought each department to life.

The combination of scrumptious pizza and enthusiastic students resulted in an experience that was not only delicious but also highly informative. Our Year 9 students returned with a broader perspective on the range of educational pathways available to them.
