Eaton Bank Academy

On Your Marks, Get Set, Cook!


Local primary schools have visited Eaton Bank Academy to take part in ‘On Your Marks, Get Set, Cook!’, hosted by the school’s catering partners Chartwells.

The pupils cheered on the green team (led by Mrs Andrews) and red team (led by Mr O’Neill) as they prepared two healthy meals in just 15 minutes. The green team made cauliflower and chickpea curry with a spiced couscous, whilst the red team made Thai fish cakes and noodles.  The Eaton Bank Academy ‘chefs’ were supported by Chloe (Buglawton), Sam (Marlfields), Cente (Mossley) and Rebecca (Havannah) who helped the teams prepare and cook the meals in the allocated time.

The audience had the opportunity to taste the two meals and voted for their favourite, with Mr O’Neill’s red team judged to be the winners!
