We realise the vital role that the food we offer at School plays in pupils’ lives as they spend so much time at School.
We understand that school lunches are now being described as helping to enable young people to develop what some experts are calling “Food Sense”, which is described as the understanding of how our choices affect us as well as our surroundings. As such, we look to provide nutritious and appetising meals that are carefully sourced, and always with an eye to using good quality ingredients. Furthermore, eating food in a community environment with their peers provides pupils with an opportunity for a different kind of social interaction during the busy school day.
Since 1 September 2017 we have been working in partnership with specialist contract catering company, Holroyd Howe, who are responsible for the provision of our school food.
Holroyd Howe is a leading independent school caterer and the company has a wealth of experience in delivering nutritious, creative food. As a strictly fresh food business, Holroyd Howe prides itself on sourcing the finest British ingredients, as locally as possible and approaches food with a no fuss attitude. Nothing processed, nothing added – just honest, delicious food every day.
Placing a strong emphasis on the health and well-being of pupils, Holroyd Howe design their menu to include a wide variety of ingredients, cuisines and culinary styles, encouraging our pupils to try new things and enjoy a balanced diet.
Full of creative ideas, Holroyd Howe run interactive food demonstrations and cookery classes for a fun, hands-on approach to food education. These might include teaching pupils how to make fresh pasta or sushi, or creating colourful recipe cards that encourage them to try new types of food, and learn about seasonality and the variety of ingredients available.
The friendly catering team are experienced in handling all dietary needs and allergies and will be on hand to answer any questions you or your children might have.
We know that it is important to you to know that we are providing the very highest standards of school food for your children and for this reason, we welcome you to visit us at the school to meet the Holroyd Howe team and our own chefs.
