Cookery Studio

We are excited to share some news about a fantastic new project for our community.

Our Mission

To improve the health of our diverse, multi-generational community by bringing people together to inspire a love of excellent food through extraordinary education.

What we want to do and why?

We want to build and run a sustainable Cookery Studio to inspire a love and appreciation of healthy, homemade food for our community. As a school, ‘healthy bodies and minds’ is at the heart of our vision, and we believe that a Cookery Studio is integral to educating and motivating our whole community.

We aim to offer the following:

  • Children’s cookery classes
  • Community adult cookery workshops
  • Parent and child cookery workshops
  • Children’s cookery parties
  • Staff training

The difference the Cookery Studio will make:

We are fortunate to have an excellent chef who is passionate about the benefits of healthy, homemade food offering an interesting, wholesome, tasty experience at meal times.

We are also fortunate to have a well-loved allotment, which offers education about the environment, where food comes from and composting.

However, we lack a space to learn to cook and understand food. A school matters enormously to a community but at Highgate Primary, we take great pride in our spaces and want to ensure we have a huge impact on society.

We believe our Cookery Studio will have the following impact:

  • Reducing obesity
  • Developing a healthy relationship with food
  • Reducing food waste
  • Bringing the community together

Fundraising:

We are raising the needed funds through:

  • Grants
  • PSA Fundraising
  • Businesses
