Our Food

Our school meals are healthy, fresh and delicious. We work with bespoke catering company, Thomas Franks and use local suppliers and fresh ingredients wherever possible to provide our pupils with nutritious, exciting options.

Our existing catering team work alongside specialists from Thomas Franks to create new, exciting daily offerings and catering for events. As well as a Chef's special and a Vegan/Vegetarian option each day, our lunch spreads include 'grab and go' options, freshly homemade bread to accompany meals, daily soup and salad bars, hydration stations and fresh fruit.

Our boarders enjoy exciting breakfast options, including fresh fruit smoothies and breakfast specials, which the chefs adapt each day to add variety to the morning offerings.


All allergens are carefully considered and catered for - Thomas Franks take this responsibility incredibly seriously. The team is provided with comprehensive training on differentiated allergen management procedures, other dietary needs and cooking bespoke food when needed.


There is an honesty in the food we serve and one which will benefit your students. The kitchen will be a hive of activity where all the dishes and locally sourced ingredients are freshly prepared and even the salad dressings are made from scratch. 98% of our food is freshly prepared on-site to maximise its flavour and goodness. The only frozen food permitted will be sweetcorn, peas and puff pastry; everything else will be made from natural, raw ingredients. Part of the way we encourage healthy eating is to provide beautifully cooked food with plenty of variety and fresh fruit and vegetables. Thomas Franks was founded on the principles of honesty, trust and loyalty. Where we only work with local and regional, family-owned suppliers.
