Over a period of 10 weeks (to the end of March) we have joined forces with our canteen who have devised a selection of recipes and areas of baking to focus on – very much “Great British Bake Off” style.
Each section runs for 2 weeks and it is simple base recipes which students, staff and parents may well want to use at home to develop new skills or simply have some fun in the kitchen.
Week 1 starts on Monday 25th January 2021 with Bread but you can join in when you wish.
We are asking students to send in photos to the School on the email firstname.lastname@example.org of their baking for that week.
The Winners of each round will be in with a chance to win one of two prizes at the end of the Challenge.
The judges for our school are Phil – Head chef in the canteen and Mrs Walker – Head of Food Technology
Students can use their own recipes, not just the ones sent in the pack.
Week one kicks off with bread and the details will be shared with pupils via the school website and form teachers.

After five gruelling games in the ultra-competitive world of District Premier League Football, the Year 9 Boys found themselves in joint top spot in the league, which earned them a place in the League Final. St Michaels were the opposition and having beaten them already in the league confidence was high. A slow and lacklustre start saw the Year 9’s under pressure early on but thankfully a breakaway Harrison Chick goal settled the team. St Michaels equalised almost immediately but the players responded well and took the lead again after a robust challenge on the goalkeeper By Arjen Gajar lead to the ball finding its way into the net. Again, St Michaels equalised almost immediately from a back-post header with the half finishing at 2-2.
Knowing that the half time team talk would be crucial, the experienced Mr Gallagher roused his players and made 3 tactical changes for the second half. St Joan’s started the second half on the front foot and were rewarded with an outstanding counter attacking goal. The ball was played out from the back to Travis McKenna on the left wing, who had the vision to spot the run of Harrison Chick charging through midfield. Harrison stormed through the defence and slotted the ball home. 3-2. With the end of the game fast approaching, St Michaels threw everything forward (including their goalkeeper and centre back) but the defence stood firm. With seconds left on the clock, Giacomo Viazanni found himself one on one with the last defender. He bullied the defender off the ball, got his head up and picked out the run of second half substitute Gabriel Neves. Gabriel duly rounded the goalkeeper and calmly slotted the ball into the net to spark jubilant celebrations. 4-2 winners and District Premier League Champions!
Well done to all of the Year 9 Boys involved, who have been a credit to the school through their effort, performance and attitude throughout the year. Roll on next season!

Last week our Year 10 GCSE students visited ‘Butler and Sons’ butchers on New Road Croxley Green
Steve Butler kindly demonstrated how to debone and portion a whole chicken. Thank you
Then yesterday the students deboned and portioned their own chicken and they made chicken bites. some also made a chicken stock. In their forthcoming lessons they will make hunters chicken, chicken wrapped in bacon stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese and spicy buffalo wings from their whole chicken.
Year 10 GCSE students visited the FOOD: Bigger than the Plate exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum
It explored how innovative individuals, communities and organisations are radically re-inventing how we grow, distribute and experience food.
This exhibition took us on a sensory journey through the food cycle, from compost to table, it posed questions about how the collective choices we make can lead to a more sustainable, just and delicious food future in unexpected and playful ways.
