Our reputation speaks for itself - founded in 1894, we’re the oldest bakery school in the world

As a dynamic and influential school with an international reputation for industry-informed courses, our students are well placed to benefit from both our fantastic sophisticated facilities and our extensive industrial networks.

Our courses combine theoretical and practical learning to equip our students to meet the challenges offered by the food industry. We cover all aspects of food from nutrition to new product development, from sustainability to sensory analysis, and from hygiene to legislation and quality assurance.
