This prestigious course is offered to Sixth Form students and is completed over five terms. Numbers are restricted to eight girls in each group to allow sufficient space and attention for each student. The course is designed to teach all skills needed to be confident, capable and efficient cooks and the qualification can be used to obtain jobs, or to allow girls to take a more advanced cookery certificate when leaving School. Girls with the basic certificate can join ‘Leiths List’, which is their own employment agency for students seeking work.

“I believe our timeless appeal lies in our dedication to providing a rigorous, comprehensive culinary education. We equip students with a toolbox of skills while encouraging them to develop into individual, confident and creative cooks.”
Camilla Schneideman, Managing Director of Leiths School of Food and Wine
