Baristas in training

St Philip’s school is pleased to announce a new social enterprise. Students and staff have teamed up with a local food bank to provide customers with teas and coffees.  The Talbot House Cafe, has proved a big hit at the foodbank.  The customers have been enjoying lattes and cappuccinos all made by our students. 

The group are being taught how to use a coffee machine and also learning basic barista skills.  The training, coffee machine and beans have all been supplied by our friends at Coffee Bay in Tolworth.  We are also using a Makaton based ordering system, which is proving very popular. One student has told us that it’s their “highlight of the week.”

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
