Pupils learn hospitality

Hospitality students from the county have visited a catering firm to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes.

The Bedlingtonshire Community High School sixth form students had the opportunity to visit P&A contract catering at GE Oil & Gas in Cramlington.

Gary Patrick, manager at P&A, took students through menus, how the catering service is set up, various job roles and how the team communicate with each other; along with the students watching a full service of prep to counter. 

Assistant headteacher Jamie Bell said: “The visit provided the opportunity for students to see what they study put into practice.

“Gary also provided lots of food samples for the students to test and trial.”
