Frequently asked questions

Can 3-5 year olds attend the cooking school?

Our kids cooking school offers a number of choices for all children to attend class. Adult and child classes are currently the most popular choice for parents who want 3-5 year olds to attend cooking. At our discretion, 5 year olds may attend after school classes and Saturday classes with an older sibling. Please get in touch with our team to discuss further by email at

Parking is available in nearby streets with a limited number of free parking spaces on Silver Road off Elmira Street. The nearest station is Lewisham served by National Rail and DLR. A member of our team will be present to meet and greet at the main gate before start times.
