School Meals


Our day and boarding pupils are lucky enough to enjoy a delicious selection of nutritious meals every day thanks to our fabulous Catering Manager, Adam, who joined Shebbear in 2019, bringing with him over 30 years professional experience as a Chef and Manager.

Adam is passionate about providing our pupils with tasty, nutritious meals prepared using only the freshest, quality ingredients, and cooks all meals on-site using local, fresh produce.

All of our food is freshly prepared using ingredients sourced from selected and approved local producers and suppliers who deliver daily. Our vegetables, fruit, eggs, dairy, poultry, meat and bread come from no more than 30 miles away. All of our chicken is halal and we always provide vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free options.

There is always an option of hot main dishes, vegetarian selections, a range of cold meats, freshly made sandwiches and baguettes and a varied salad bar. Fresh fruit, yogurts and a traditional dessert are also available.

Our seasonal menus are changed regularly, and we embrace the School Food’s Trust nutritional guidelines, actively encouraging pupils to eat nutritionally balanced meals. Our food contains no hydrogenated fats, salt, additives or undesirable preservatives and we aim to use less sugar wherever possible.

We have our own in-house catering department which enables us to employ and train all our own chefs. We take great pride in our autonomy as it allows us to produce the type of creative, fresh and nutritious food that appeals to our international community.

We are proud to use produce from suppliers who observe a high standard of animal welfare. This policy ensures no factory farming, lots of outdoor space and fresh air, encouragement of normal animal behaviour, no routine use of drugs, vaccines, no genetically modified feed or growth hormones and minimised stress in transport and slaughter.
