Georgia and Gianna did a fantastic job at the Baking Challenge on Monday. They had 2 hours to bake and decorate their cakes with no help at all. Gianna made a superb ‘allotment’ with carrots, cauliflowers and cabbages that she modelled out of icing. Georgia showed her piping skills by filling a cake full of pink and white roses. They were both excellent ambassadors for the school. We didn’t win the competition, but they are both winners as far as we’re concerned.



A big ‘well done’ to all the Year 6 children who entered the Baking Challenge on Tuesday after School. The children had 1 hour to decorate a cake on the theme of ‘Springtime’. At the end of the session teachers came over to The Harmony Centre to judge both the taste and look of the cakes. They were so impressed with the creativity and finished results. The children who entered were: Lydia Richards, Daniel Calvert, Connor Stockwell, Marina Lasa, Tom Jenkins, Sam Prince, Callie Rayner, Hannah Grace, Bailey Shore, Mollie Evea, Alex Young, Freya Drummond, Sam Cozens, Killian Smith, Georgia Thomas, Theo Blake, Keira Walker, Alexandra Van Heerden, Ben Nixon, Maisie Freeland, Gianna Bruno, Grace Elkins, Daniel Keighley and Jess Adams. A big well done to all of you, the staff who judged were so impressed with both the look and the taste of the cakes. The two children who go through to the finals held at Claremont School on Monday are Gianna Bruno and Georgia Thomas.  

Baking Challenge 2016

For the third year in a row children from Ashley School took part in the Baking Challenge competition at Claremont Fan Court School in Esher. This year Megan Maddocks and Ellie Richards from Year 6 represented the school. The contestants came from a number of local schools and were chosen following baking challenge events in their own schools. The judges included a chef, two local coffee shop owners and the Mayor of Elmbridge. To our delight and for the second year running, we won the junior competition with Megan receiving a trophy and certificate as the outright winner. The judges also commended Ellie’s cake as being excellent. A big well done to both of them. The teachers at Claremont also said how impressed they were with both girls; the way they supported their fellow contestants and cleared away afterwards. What fantastic ambassadors for the school you were, Megan and Ellie
