Charm School at Fowey Hall

We recently welcomed Jon Kay, BBC Breakfast presenter and West of England correspondent for BBC news, and cameraman, Eddie Stephens, for an afternoon of filming with our Charm School for Boys students.

Our 30-strong group of boys dressed immaculately, and prepared with some shoe-polishing and ironing, for their lesson in fine dining with former student, Ben Fagan, now Restaurant Manager at Fowey Hall Hotel. Students were taught how to set a table, how to fold napkins, the importance of a firm handshake and how to greet a lady.

Thank you to Miss Munro and Mrs Fletcher for organising the day, and to the team at Fowey Hall Hotel who provided a classic afternoon tea for students, teachers and crew.
