3 Cafe Kitchen at Three Ways School in Bath is hosting ‘The Great Bath Scone Off’ and is inviting parents and children to enter the competition.

Three Ways Special School and a panel of expert judges will be sampling, sizing up and examining an array of scones on 6th October. The winning baker of savoury and sweet scones will be crowned Bath Best Scone Makers.

The Scone Off is part of The Great Bath Feast and entrants are asked to register and make a £2.50 donation towards the ongoing fundraising for 3 Café Kitchen. All scones must be presented to the judging panel on the day and a winner will be announced after tasting and evaluation.

3 Café Kitchen is different, it exists to give young people with special needs work experience and training in a real life Café, work experience that they are unable to secure elsewhere. Based at Three Ways Special School in Odd Down, 3 Café Kitchen opened in July 2017 and provides a is a bright, airy space offering delicious locally sourced and homemade breakfasts, lunches, coffees and scones.

The aim of the centre is to develop employability skills for young people with a range of disabilities and give real-life experience in a café and shop which is open to the public. Over the next year they hope to facilitate 60 young people to complete work placements and gain qualifications in the centre. They are are developing links with local employers and training providers in order to ensure that the young people have options when they leave school.

3 Café Kitchen’s Chef Mark challenges the people of Bath. “I pride myself on my savory scones, one of our signature dishes, so bring on the competition!”

Head Teacher, Jo Stoaling, added, “We are looking forward to this opportunity to showcase our new café as part of The Great Bath Feast. Our young people love television programmes like the Great British Bake Off and this is an opportunity for them to be part of a community event, showing what they are capable of and inviting the community into our school. We look forward to your entries.”
