Leiths School of Food and Wine in London have collaborated with Truro School to form Leiths at Truro School, the only Leiths Academy School in Devon and Cornwall. Sixth Form students at Truro School can enrol on the ‘Leiths Certificate in Food and Wine’, which can lead to opportunities for paid employment via the prestigious ‘Leiths list’. The qualification is also accredited as a Level 3 ‘Certificate in Professional Cookery’ which is highly regarded on a UCAS application and carries a significant number of UCAS points to complement traditional A-level subjects.
The purpose-built cookery school offers fully equipped workstations along with a state-of-the-art demonstration area with an overhead camera aimed to build confidence in the kitchen.
Cookery is also available to all students at Truro School Cookery as part of their Wednesday Afternoon Activity programme as well as a range of after-school clubs. The syllabus includes courses such as ‘Round the world’ – cookery skills within an international context, ‘Cooking for life’ – building confidence in the kitchen with classic recipes and ‘How to cook’ – basic cooking skills with everyday recipes.
