The Rhyl Kitchen Classroom is now open – after nearly five years of fundraising and hard work by the team at Rhyl.

It’s been quite a journey. Back in 2016, a group of school staff cycled from the school to the Eiffel Tower in Paris in the first phase of an epic fundraising effort that has now raised around £200,000 from scratch.

The building is located in our award-winning Outdoor Classroom, enabling us to integrate learning from plot-to-plate.

Find out more about this inspiring project on the Rhyl Kitchen Classroom website and follow us on our social media channels @rhylkitchen.

This unique building is fitted out with commercial-grade kitchen equipment and available for hire outside of school hours, along with our Outdoor Classroom and pizza oven if desired. You can find out more by clicking on the image below.

At Rhyl, this building enables us to take our teaching and learning to a new level. We have designed a new scheme of work that links to our Connected Curriculum and pupils will enjoy around six days of learning per academic year in this environment.

The project manager is teacher Tom Moggach, who leads on outdoor learning and food education at the school and founded the Rhyl Kitchen Classroom.

Our vision is to provide:

  • Top quality food education to all our pupils and parents
  • A beacon of good practice in food education, sharing the kitchen as a training venue for other schools and educators
  • An opportunity for local community groups to use this fantastic resource outside of school hours
