We provide a well-balanced and nutritious diet and promote healthy eating for all our pupils. Our Food Council helps to ensure that pupils’ suggestions about school lunches are taken on board and implemented.

Healthy Food – freshly prepared on site

All of our food is prepared freshly on site by our Chartwells Chef and her team. Her daily order for fruit and vegetables comes either from the local greengrocer or direct from local farmers and the meat order is delivered daily by local butcher. All suppliers, including farmers, are audited against very strict food quality and safety standards and regularly undergo independent audits to ensure these standards are upheld.

Chartwells is one of the largest education-based catering companies in the UK and provides food for a large number of independent schools nationwide. We work hard with them to ensure the food we serve is healthy, nutritious and prepared using fresh ingredients from scratch. Financially, we provide an extremely high budget per pupil – around four times as much per day as in most state schools – to ensure that children are well-fed with good food. Unlike some schools, we do not use pre-prepared dishes and we know where the source ingredients come from.
