Longfield Academy is very proud of the opportunity for our students to access a Professional Catering Course (City & Guilds) at Post 16. Our students complete Level 1, 2 and 3 courses covering all aspects of food preparation, handling, planning and costing menus as well as front of house service.
The Telescope Bistro is a fine dining experience open to the public every Thursday and Friday. We seat up to 35 diners in each sitting with a menu planned by the students.
Our guests are amazed at the quality of food and service and enjoy dining during the academy day.
Please see below the menu for this week.
“I have recommended this unique dining experience to my friends and family” – Mr G Glover
Students respond well to skilful questioning. As a result, they think deeply and use skills such as inference and empathy to move their learning on. Very effective learning was observed in a science lesson in Year 7 where skilful questioning led to students challenging their own thoughts and considering the views of others.
Students receive excellent information, advice and guidance, including careers advice. All students leaving the academy go on to further or higher education, employment or training.
Students in the sixth form feel valued and supported. During their time in the sixth form, they take on many different responsibilities around the academy, including supporting and mentoring younger pupils.
