Construction work has begun on Bromley College’s new hospitality department in Orpington.

Three floors of the campus building are being transformed into a catering and training facility, which will include kitchens, classrooms, and a student restaurant.

Named The Hospitality Food and Enterprise College, it will open its doors this September and will offer 14-19 year-olds the opportunity to train in the industry while studying for core GCSEs.

Principal Sam Parrett said: “Today marks another important day in the history of Bromley College as we embark upon this exciting construction project.

“The new student-run restaurant will be offering a taste of international cuisine to the public and we are looking forward to welcoming the community and showing them what our students have to offer.”
