An Isle of Wight school has baked its way into the record books.

Cowes Enterprise College, and the Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT), now holds a Guinness World Record — for The Largest Baking Lesson (Multiple Venues).

More than 700 individual bakers from across OAT's schools stepped into the kitchen for a virtual cooking lesson.

Of those, 25 students from Cowes put on their aprons to learn how to create a delicious, record-breaking mango galette.

In an official presentation ceremony, Guinness World Records adjudicator confirmed that OAT has beaten the previous record, which stood at 497 people.

An incredible 713 budding bakers taking part in the live tutorial.

Dan Woods, Lead Practitioner for Food Design and Technology, Ormiston Academies Trust said:
“We are so proud of all our academies, staff, and students for getting involved with this exciting challenge.

"It was great to see how much all our bakers across the country enjoyed creating their galettes, and the icing on the cake was to hear the Guinness World Records team confirm that we have officially broken the previous record.”

The record-breaking attempt follows the trust’s The Great Ormiston Bake competition last year, where over 3,000 students competed to take home the prestigious baking title for their academy.
