Sky Cafe – Paddy & Scott’s Opens At Finborough!
We are delighted that the Sky Cafe is now open for business from 8am through to 5.30pm every week day. The cafe offers Paddy and Scott’s coffee, hot chocolate and tea alongside homemade smoothies and cake. It is open to the Finborough school community and visitors to the site.
Our unique venture is run by Lexi Lees, our Cafe manager and a team of sixth form baristas. It has been set up as a separate business and they are accountable for its success, providing an outstanding educational and employability opportunity. Three of the sixth formers also hold the titles of HR Manager, Finance Manager and Business Development Manager. They will meet with the investors (James and Louise Sinclair) and Justin Cain our Consultant Chef every month. So not only will they learn to serve the perfect cup of coffee they should hopefully learn some valuable business lessons along the way!
