What should I wear to my course?
We advise comfortable clothing and flat, closed-toe, non-slip shoes (no open-toed sandals please). If you have an apron then it’s a good idea to bring it along to protect your clothes, and long hair should be tied back. We advise that cardigans and jumpers should not be worn as loose fibres can spoil your work.
What should I bring to my course? Do I need to buy equipment?
Squires now provides all course materials and equipment needed on the day for use during your class. All equipment must be returned at the end of your course, however we will provide all students with a discount code that can be used on our online shop.
On the day we will provide you with an apron, full student notes and a box to take home your creation with you. You may wish to bring a heavy duty large bag to carry your box in.
Can I take photos and film in class?
You can take as many photos in as you like in class, however filming is only permitted at tutors discretion. If you post on social media please do tag us in (Instagram @squireskitchen / Facebook @squireskitchenschool)!
What do I do about lunch? Will there be a break?
You will have regular breaks for refreshments throughout the day - hot and cold drinks will be available in the school reception throughout the day as well as some delicious Squires made cakes.
You will have approximately a 30 minute break for lunch. We suggest that you might want to bring a packed lunch with you, which can be stored in our student fridge.
Please be advised that the closest shops to us are at least a 10 minute walk away!
Is there parking available?
Unfortunately there is no student parking available outside the school grounds in Hones Yard.
Parking can be found on Broomleaf Road (restricted hours) or at Farnham Station.
If you have a blue badge or in need of assistance please do let us know in advance to make suitable arrangements.
How many other students will be in my class?
The maximum number of students in any class will be 12, to ensure that individual attention can be given to each student by the tutor.
Do I get a certificate at the end?
Yes, at the end of each course you will be given a certificate to verify that you have successfully completed a class in the Squires Kitchen Curriculum.
I want to learn something specific, do you offer Private Tuition?
Yes we do. Please contact us with your enquiry here and let us know what you would like to learn and we will contact you asap.
Do you do courses for children?
We have a fantastic range of courses specifically designed for our Junior Bakers. All Juniors must be aged between 7 to 15 years old and must be accompanied by a guardian over the age of 18.
Please see our range of Junior Bakers classes here.
Where can I stay overnight locally?
There are many hotels and B&Bs close by; we have a list of local accommodation that we know and recommend to students. When booking, please mention that you are coming on a course at Squires Kitchen.
I have an allergy; can I still come on a course?
Please contact us with your specific requirement/circumstances and we will advise you as to how we can best assist.
I have comments about the course I have been on, where do I send them?
When you come on a class here at Squires Kitchen you will receive a feedback form at the end of your course. Please leave your comments here, or you can email us with them at any time. We really appreciate your feedback to help us offer an even better experience for our students.
