Freshfields Cafe

The ultimate aim of Oak Lodge School is to prepare students for life in the outside world. Equipped with a kitchen, cafe area, and shop, the Freshfields Cafe provides an environment in which Sixth Form pupils can gain quality work experience in a real world setting, preparing food, serving customers and selling craft merchandise.

As well as cooking and serving in the Cafe, pupils will also be responsible for managing the Cafe as a small business, selling coffee, sandwiches and craft goods to staff, pupils and the local community.

The Cafe project was entirely funded by generous personal donations from staff and partners from the City law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringers, whose on-going support of Oak Lodge has had a hugely positive impact on both pupils and staff.
