About Us

Our Story

Where It All Began

Devised by Eileen Buicke-Kelly and Dave Chalk the first Heat took place at Highlands College and the Hotel de France. Three colleges featured – Westminster Kingsway, Bradford and Jersey. The winning team was Jersey, who were mentored by Michelin star chef Mark Jordan, with the gala hosted by James Tanner.

Heat Grew Bigger And Better

We moved from the Hotel de France to St Brelade’s Bay in 2018 and two new colleges came over to compete – Middlesbrough, and Farnborough. After a very close contest, our host James Tanner announced that Jersey, this time mentored by Samphire’s Michelin star chef Lee Smith had won the competition.

Our Competition Just Gets Better

2019 saw us extend the number of colleges competing to four, and we welcomed back Farnborough and Middlesbrough, with South Eastern Regional College from Northern Ireland joining Jersey as competitors. To a packed audience at the gala night, our host Nigel Barden announced that Farnborough college were the winners. To celebrate they went for a swim in the sea!

The Future of Heat

With applications open for 2020, we look forward to welcoming three new colleges to Jersey to compete for the Heat Trophy. Check out how to enter on our “apply” page.
