Prue Leith is a familiar face to the people of Great Britain, especially lovers of cake, and now she has opened a new state-of-the-art cookery school at Truro School.

In addition to enabling practical cookery to be taught throughout the school, the facility gives sixth form students the opportunity to complete the prestigious Leiths Introductory Certificate of Food and Wine.

After the official opening, Prue said: “So good to find a school taking food so seriously and everyone having so much fun in the brilliant new cook school.”

During a Q&A with the pupils, Prue revealed that catering college had never taught her anything about the love for, or history of, food and she wanted to ensure her students were taught how interesting food can be at every level.

Andrew Gordon-Brown, Headmaster of Truro School, commented: “It is fantastic that we are able to provide such state-of-the-art facilities, not only for our pupils to learn to cook but for our Sixth Formers to become associated with such a prestigious organisation as Leiths. We pride ourselves on giving our students the stepping stones to success after they have left school and university, and this is just one more way in which we can do that.”
