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 social time at school; in the Pre-Prep a teacher or teaching assistant heads the table and serves lunch with children sitting in social rather than class groups. In the Prep, a cafeteria system is used for lunch and again the children sit in social groups. We encourage the children to try new foods and expect all the children to hold a knife and fork correctly. They are taught how to cut their food properly and help is given when needed. When they have finished, the children clear their own dishes away.
