Baking Science and Food Technology

125 years of professional baking experience

Here at the National Bakery School we merge the craft of baking with science and technology. Baking is a unique blend of heritage and cutting-edge innovation, and our three technical bakery courses teach you all the skills you need to progress through the exciting world of commercial baking and food manufacturing.

You’ll learn a variety of skills, from the art and science behind the production of chocolate, bread and pastry, to the highly technical skills of baking chemistry, all-important food safety and more.

Our exceptional, state-of-the-art baking facilities and expert teachers are built on the foundations of the UK’s oldest baking school. Together, they provide an education that helps every baking enthusiast rise. Plus, excellent placements and strong links with the industry mean you’ll be extremely well placed if you’re looking to enter the sector, or if you’re thinking of setting up on your own, our dedicated Enterprise team will be able to give you a hand.
