About the NBS
The Bakery School is often invited to make cakes for major centenaries or other such events of national importance - from the wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip to the Millennium celebrations. During the 1st and 2nd World Wars, it devised recipes to make the best use of food during rationing.
The Worshipful Company of BakersThe National Bakery School has maintained a close relationship with the Worshipful Company of Bakers, which is one of the oldest of the City of London Livery Companies. Its members take a close interest in the work of our students and offer bursaries and other help to them. In return you play a part in maintaining this historic connection.
You might be part of the team to bake the loaves needed for the annual 'peppercorn rent', which the Worshipful company has to pay for Bakers' Hall. Your bread will be displayed at the Bakers' Harvest Festival, held in the church of All Hallows-by-the-Tower in the City of London or you might bake the wheaten loaf presented to the Lord Mayor as a gift from the Company at the Guild Dinner.
The highest award-winning student is offered the Freedom of the Worshipful Company of Bakers. Each year one student is given this opportunity, which carries with it the right to become a Freeman of the City of London and partake of its ancient privileges.
Both the Head of the National Bakery School and the Dean of our Faculty are Liverymen of the Worshipful Company.
