We are fully approved activity providers of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award residential courses, and our fantastic 5-day courses give students skills and confidence to cook healthy, delicious food for life. Each day is dedicated to food suited to a student budget and covers fish, meat, vegetables, pasta, rice, puddings, bread, biscuits and cakes.

The courses are true confidence and team building experiences, with small classes of no more than 12 young people working in a stunning kitchen with professional tutors. Our location means all the historical, cultural and leisure offers of our world renown city is there for students to enjoy. The course includes fun evening activities ranging from Treasure Hunts around historical Cambridge to cycle picnics and bowling. These are compulsory for DofE participants and optional and open to all students participating in the residential package.

Our residential package includes accommodation at Homerton college which is located next door to Cambridge Cookery School. For DofE Gold award students the residential package is compulsory. For all other students the residential element is optional.

Each day includes breakfast, elevenses, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner and students will not require any additional meals.

“I have had the pleasure of bringing school groups to Cambridge Cookery School twice, and on both occasions the students absolutely loved the experience. Most had little to no experience cooking and yet were all excited to try and recreate the recipes at home! At the end we sat together and ate our creation, it was a perfect way to round off the session. I cannot compliment the staff enough with their patience and understanding, while their love of cooking was infectious. Many thanks Cambridge Cookery School and we will undoubtedly come and visit again!”
