Haven x Filey School - kitchen masterclass

Haven hosts kitchen masterclass for local school students

  • Haven’s Blue Dolphin and Primrose Valley parks in Yorkshire have partnered with Filey School 
  • The scheme will provide local students with essential skills to support their personal and professional development

Haven, the UK’s leading holiday park operator, has partnered with Yorkshire-based Filey School to host cooking classes, providing them with hands-on culinary experiences guided by professional chefs from both Haven Blue Dolphin and Primrose Valley. 

The partnership between the Yorkshire parks and Filey School reflects a shared commitment to community engagement and youth development, with the aim of providing students with valuable skills that extend beyond the classroom. 

The cooking classes are aligned with the food technology curriculum to cover a range of culinary topics, including basic cooking techniques, nutrition, meal planning, and more. Students had the opportunity to work with fresh ingredients and learn to prepare delicious and healthy dishes under the guidance of experienced chefs. 

Katherine Lavender, Learning & Development Partner at Haven, said, “We're enthusiastic about empowering young individuals in our local areas, fostering their skills, knowledge, and career aspirations for successful life transitions. Our aim is that our parks build long-lasting and impactful relationships with our local school communities, and for some, welcome them to work with us in the future”.
