Our staff are fully trained in nutrition, food safety, catering and cookery skills and their aim is simple - to provide the best fuel for your child's school day.

We understand how the right nutrients can help your child's mood, their health and their ability to concentrate in lessons. That's why our delicious freshly-cooked meals easily meet - and exceed - national standards for school lunches.
Get on down to "The Hub", our ultra-modern catering concept designed by pupils themselves to recreate the look and feel of a top international food court with a complete range of hot and cold food, drinks and snacks at competitive prices.
Find out why we only buy high quality ingredients from local farmers and suppliers that we trust - and why the food ingredients we use and the high standards we work to have won us numerous national catering awards.
