The School Bakery Wins Innovation Award

Good Things Come To Those Who Bake. We won!

We are thrilled for The School Bakery to have won the NASS Innovation Award (National Association of Special Schools).

The School Bakery has been a landmark of West Kirby School since its completion in 2023 and this award recognises ‘new, adaptive, or innovative practice’ that can further improve the lives of young people. Run by Food Technology teacher Miss Meegan and our School Chef Jonathan, it has gone from strength-to-strength. 


Miss Meegan commented “The School Bakery team is delighted to receive the Innovation Award. The pupils have worked so hard on their Barista and Bread making and they are working together as a team producing high quality products with great customer service. It’s amazing to see their hard work has paid off” 


A springboard for pupils, The School Bakery as a Life-Skills Enterprise, has been vital in providing a safe-space for practical development, and the opportunity to gain accredited qualifications. Working with Miss Meegan, local baristas and businesses, the Post-16 students who run The School Bakery have been able to gain the expertise to serve the public, as well as gaining transferable skills which they can use both inside School and beyond.


The School Bakery has become an ingrained part of local life, becoming a community hub for church members and friends of the charity, as well as former students, who often come back to visit the School in a more informal setting. 


Come and visit us
