The commercial attitude of the college with outside events, connections with Nantwich Town and other local businesses, ensures their students are experiencing the diversity that the hospitality sector has to offer, enabling them to decide their chosen career path and gain the experience and knowledge to make themselves appealing future employees.

Academy restaurant is recognised as a quality training restaurant in the northwest of England offering service and dishes which comfortably stand alongside other establishments in the area.

Throughout the competition the team from Academy impressed with their passion, confidence and forward-thinking approach. This was exemplified by the presentation from their students, Elsa & Ryan, to the panel of judges where they highlighted the commercial attitude of the college with outside events, connections with Nantwich Town and other local businesses.
