THE possibility of a state-of-the-art catering facility being built at a North Somerset school has moved one step further.

THE possibility of a state-of-the-art catering facility being built at a North Somerset school has moved one step further.

Approval has been given by North Somerset Council for plans for a two-storey building at St Katherine's School in Ham Green, Pill.

However, due to the fact the school site falls on to green belt land, the plans now need to be approved by the Secretary of State.

If given the go-ahead, the building will include a basic skills kitchen, a training kitchen, a group teaching room and a 50-cover restaurant including a bar, delicatessen and outside dining area that will be open to the public out of school hours.

For hospitality training there will also be a hotel bedroom with an en suite bathroom.

To upgrade the existing school dining facilities, the plans also include a new 300-seat, double-height dining hall.
