Sir Peter Bottomley judges Fairtrade biscuit competition

The annual Fairtrade Becket Biscuit Bake Off was held today, Friday 11th March 2016. The purpose of this event is to promote Fairtrade Fortnight and to encourage children to bake using Fairtrade ingredients. We had many entries and the best 8 were chosen to compete in the final.


Competition was fierce. All teams produced a lovely batch of biscuits using Fairtrade ingredients such as bananas, sugar, chocolate and cocoa powder.


Sir Peter Bottomley, MP for Worthing West, visited the school today and met with children in 5CS who had been working on a Fairtrade topic. He then met with ‘Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood’, (alias Nessa and Benjamin) in the Cooking & Nutrition room to judge the biscuit competition. The biscuits were judged on appearance and taste. It was very close. All the biscuits were beautifully presented and tasted delicious.


The winners were Javier and William, year 6, with their chocolate, oats and banana biscuits.


A huge well done to them and to everyone who took part.
