Ripon Grammar chef Joe is a star in the making

A TALENTED young Ripon Grammar School chef battled through to the semi-finals of a TV cookery competition which challenges youngsters to run a restaurant.

The Step Up to the Plate CBBC show stars First Dates TV restaurant host Fred Sirieix and chef and co-founder of the Leon restaurant chain Allegra McEvedy.

Joe Hewitt, 13, from Kirkby Malzeard, was chosen as a chef on the kitchen crew from more than 2,000 applicants and excelled through several rounds, working in two professional kitchens across four days of filming.

During the heats Joe rose to the challenge of preparing a fresh squid dish and grilling 24 venison steaks for a full lunch service with a medieval theme.

As one of just ten schoolchildren - aged ten to 14 - to win through to the semis, he went on to devise and prepare a dish from a larder of ingredients in 30 minutes, before serving it up to food critic Grace Dent and TV presenter and Great British Bake off contestant Liam Charles

Although he wants to be an RAF pilot when he is older, Joe has a passion for cooking and experimenting with exotic ingredients and spices from all over the world.

Appearing on Step Up to the Plate was a great experience, he added: “It was very different to what I imagined."

*The programme is currently on BBC iplayer on the CBBC channel.

Severely allergic Ripon Grammar student engineers bright future

A SPORTS-loving teenager who has suffered from life-threatening food allergies since he was a baby is engineering a bright future for himself after achieving top grades in his GCSEs.

Ripon Grammar School student Toby Redfern has never let his severe allergies, which have seen him rushed to hospital six times – twice following reactions at school - stop him leading a normal life.

He achieved fours 9s, one 8, one 7, three 6s, one 5 and an A in further maths and plans to study engineering at university: “I’m very happy. I wasn’t sure what I’d get,” he said.

Having grown up with the knowledge that coming into contact with even small traces of foodstuffs including wheat, egg, dairy, nuts and legumes, could trigger an anaphylactic reaction where his throat closes up and he struggles to breathe, Toby takes it all in his stride.

The outgoing 16-year-old, from Studley Roger, plays football and tennis as well as taking part in triathlons and always carries two lifesaving adrenaline injectors to help him manage the condition.

His close friends have all been trained in what to do in the case of an emergency: “The most annoying thing is I can’t just pick up things to eat like my friends do,” says Toby.

Toby’s most severe reaction occurred in his second year when he was with a schoolfriend in Ripon Market Place and drank from a bottle of juice which had somehow been contaminated and his friend administered an adrenaline injection.



Ripon Grammar student aces GCSEs despite lack of sleep

A CHAMPION teenage swimmer who balanced her studies with 3.45am wake-up calls to travel 140-mile round trips for early morning training sessions before school is celebrating GCSE success.
Ripon Grammar School student Christa Wilson, a member of the elite Newcastle Swim Team, caught up with lost sleep and schoolwork during the 20 hours a week she spent travelling 1,000 miles by car.
Her hard work, both in and out of the pool, has now paid off.
Having competed alongside top swimmers from all over the world to achieve fastest in her category in the 200m butterfly at Glasgow International Meet this year, she has now achieved three 9s, two 8s, three 7s, in addition to an A in further maths in her GCSEs.
The 16-year-old, from Dishforth, who has her sights set on making it to the Olympics in 2024, said she was delighted with her grades: “I did find it hard to fit all my revision in around training, but I do a lot of schoolwork in the car.”.
She has been getting up in the dark to train in the pool for two hours, four times a week - in addition to four two-hour after-school swim sessions and gym training – since she was 13 years old.

Christa, who has been crowned county champion for Northumberland and Durham around 20 times, as well as winning numerous medals at national and international level over the years, recently won silver in the 400m individual medley at the English Summer Nationals.

Ripon Grammar students celebrate GCSE success

A TEENAGER who achieved 11 top grade 9s plus a rare A^ ‘hat’ is among those celebrating another set of outstanding GCSE results for Ripon Grammar School.
Molly Cushing’s clean sweep of 12 top grades was one of a number of exceptionally high individual performances amid an excellent set of overall results, despite the new, tougher exam system.
An impressive 92.7% of all grades awarded were 9-5s (the equivalent of A*-Bs) with 61.6% of all grades achieved being 9-7(A*-A)s.
The added challenge proved no barrier to success as students from the 133-strong cohort gained a total of 544 top 9/8(A*) grades, with nine students gaining a rare A^ ‘hat’, which is higher than a 9, in further maths.
Molly, 16, from Wath, said she was shocked when she saw her results: “I couldn’t believe it, I am so happy.”
She said she started revising early and did a little every day: “Drop-in sessions with teachers at lunchtimes and outside lessons really helped. They were so willing to go the extra mile to support us. They deserve a huge thank you.”
The teenager is taking A-levels in history, English literature, French and classics and hopes to study history at university: “There are lots of happy faces this morning, my friends have all done well. We’re all keen to get on with our A-levels now,” she said.
