Our catering team are specialists in school catering with over 30 years` experience in the catering industry. We offer a delicious menu that contains students` favourite dishes. We offer traditional food but also like to introduce new tastes and eating experiences that will appeal to all students. We achieve this through regular menu changes and our special days which include foods from around the world.
We only use high quality ingredients with assured provenance. We have complete control over every meal – so we comfortably meet guidelines for minimising the use of salt, sugar and saturated fats. We use steamer and combination ovens to ensure foods retain as many nutrients as possible. This approach has the added benefit of reducing energy consumption and a more positive effect on the environment.
We have a food development team continuously working on new, innovative recipes and menus to meet the needs of the students. Our aim is to develop new dishes to ensure our students are constantly offered an exciting range of tempting, mouth-watering, freshly prepared meals and snacks. The students have the opportunity to put ideas forward to improve the catering service through the student council.
We encourage students to eat a balanced meal at lunchtime and parents can review what has been purchased through our cashless catering system. Allergen information is displayed on the dining room notice board and a copy is also available from the catering team on request. Students are encouraged to discuss any dietary requirements with staff who can help cater to their individual needs.
We pride ourselves on offering a professional customer focused service to all our students. The dining room provides a service from 8am – 8.30am, 11.10am – 11.30am and 12.30 pm – 1.30pm.
