Our caterers, Holroyd Howe work exclusively in the independent school sector. They specialise in providing freshly prepared and nutritious food, priding themselves on getting to know those they feed and becoming part of the school community. Our resident chef Tom oversees our dedicated kitchen staff who prepare and cook all our food on site daily.

We offer a choice of a hot meal or a baked potato, homemade soup and a salad selection with a daily choice of desserts including cooked puddings or ice-cream, and fruit. We support most dietary requirements including halal, gluten, dairy and egg free options and have a no nut policy. We use organic produce where possible, Red Tractor meat that is traceable, safe and farmed with care, we never use fish on the Marine Conservation Society ‘fish to avoid’ list and all our eggs are free range.

Lunch is a family time at school; a teacher or teaching assistant heads the table in Pre-Prep and either teaching staff or older student in Prep. Children sit in social rather than class groups and we encourage the children to try new foods. We expect all the children to hold a knife and fork correctly; knife in the right hand and fork in the left unless religious reasons dictate otherwise; and we teach them how to cut their food giving help where it is needed. Children clear their own dishes away having first asked the teacher that they may do so.
