Our experienced Thomas Franks catering team serves hot lunches every day to all children from Nursery to Sixth Form, producing all food on site.
Our Dining Hall has been awarded 5* hygiene rating.
The weekly menu is emailed to parents the week before and also published here on the website. Food is nutritious and varied. It helps children maintain attention in class and supports their physical and mental development. Our chef caters for vegetarians and children requiring special diets for specific medically proven conditions and ensures our food respects a range of religions and cultures. Pupils and parents frequently comment on the quality of the food we serve and pupils especially enjoy the kindness and thoughtfulness of the catering staff.
Thomas Franks are independent contract caterers with a passion for excellent food, outstanding service and fresh thinking. They source the best fresh, local & regional, seasonal produce from family owned catering specialists.
Our ‘school garden’ has seen children planting and nurturing seeds and plants before getting to eat them. Our chef, Sian Dalton, works with the children to show and explain how the vegetables and herbs they grow are used in the meals she prepares for them. We seek to enhance the children’s understanding of where their food comes from, and of the benefits of a healthy and balanced diet. Dessert options always include yoghurts and fresh fruit.
Our chef, Sian, and her team regularly put on special themed menus. Last term’s themes included Elvis, Harry Potter (at Halloween), German Christmas Markets and Polar Express (at Christmas). They all have a real “wow” factor!
