Are you aged 14-16 and love cooking?

Back by popular demand, this year the Junior Chef Academy Programme will be a FREE 10-day programme, this time fully subsidised by our culinary partner, Compass Group, aimed at students in years 10 & 11, with sessions running after school at Highbury College, Tudor Crescent, Portsmouth, PO6 2SA.

During the course, students will learn a variety of cookery skills and we strongly encourage parents to join. The course will end with a Graduation Dinner, which you will cook on Wednesday 20th May, to which parents and guests are invited.


Please email by Friday 7th February to register your interest. You will then be sent a booking form and confirmation of a place.


There are a total of 10 sessions delivered on Wednesdays 5-8pm, from 4th March until the 20th May.


The Junior Chef Academy Programme is completely FREE for students aged 14-16.

My daughter absolutely loved being in the Junior Chef Academy, she learned so much in her 10 weeks and gained so much confidence and experience. A big thank you from us for giving her the opportunity, she really enjoyed herself.
