During lockdown Mr Bignell, Director of Sport & PE, is running live 20-minute meals where he is teaching the students to cook. Pupils are provided with an ingredients list a week in advance and then they join Mr Bignell online to learn how to combine them. In the first week over 20 boys joined in cooking cabbage and bacon pasta with garlic bread. From the meals they produced it looks like it was a great success and, although Mr Bignell will be the first to admit he is no Jamie Oliver, getting the boys to understand how to create good healthy meals from scratch is certainly an excellent life skill.
