We were delighted to hear from the Principal of Selby College, Allan Stewart, that one of Brayton High School’s former students, Level 2 Professional Cookery student Kurtus Auty, who is studying at the college, has been named Yorkshire’s best young chef after winning the title of the Golden Apron 2015 at the Pipe and Glass Inn at South Dalton, near Beverley.
Kurtus’s winning dish was herb-crusted fillet of pork, apple and black pudding bon bon, Ampleforth Cider and butternut squash purée.
Sponsors ASDA also announced a surprise addition to the prize package – that he will be working with them to create a new food product to add to their range!
Selby College, his lecturers there and all at Brayton High School are very proud of Kurtus’s achievement.

Congratulations also go to a further two former Brayton High School students, Kieran Heeley and Robert Shipley, who will be receiving their Duke of Edinburgh Gold awards, from the Duke of Edinburgh, on 18th November at a Reception
at St. James's Palace.
Both started the programme whilst in Year 9 at Brayton High School and completed the Bronze and Silver awards whilst at the school. They completed the Gold while at Selby (Kieran) and York (Robert) Colleges. Both are now at University;
Kieran at the University of Birmingham studying Chemical Engineering and Robert at the University of Durham studying Computer Science, after outstanding A level results in August.
Kieran’s father, Ashley Heeley, said “It
was the foundations built whilst at Brayton that helped them to achieve well in years 12/13 and hopefully beyond.”
We wish Kurtus, Kieran and Robert well in their future studies and careers.
