A good teaching staff is like a good cake. We don't mean soaked in alcohol and containing more than a few nuts – that would be rude – we mean the perfect mix of different ingredients, combined to create something everybody can enjoy. So it's likely that more than a fair few teachers will be tuning in to the final of the Great British Bake Off this evening. With that in mind, we thought we'd take the opportunity to give you some suggestions for post-GBBO treats for your staffroom. A Great British Bake Ofsted, if you will.
