Year 7 Student, Cassandra Avery, who made cookies, gluten free bread and lemon meringue, said: "I've really enjoyed today and I would like to have a career involving cooking when I'm older. This has been a great experience for me.I'm really proud of the afternoon tea we have produced."
KSA Food Technology teacher, Simon Isaacs said: "We've had a great competition this year. The standard of the contestants has been fantastic.
"We had 12 students enter the contest this year and it was a really fiercely fought competition to get to the final.
"For the first time at the Bake Off some of our products are gluten free because one of our students is from a gluten free family and the dishes they have produced have been superb.
"I'm very proud of all our students. They have done fantastically well.
"We also had a lot of support from our Art department and our Resistant Materials students who made the display for our afternoon tea."
