Food

2013_Dining_hall_serveryMeals of all kinds – breakfast, lunch, supper, sports teas, bedtime snacks – are provided for the school by our caterers, Holroyd Howe, and are served by a cheerful, friendly and dedicated staff.  All food is prepared on site, and the company has a policy of providing, as far as is possible, fresh food that is sustainably and locally sourced.

Boarders (and those choosing to do enrichment activities on Saturday mornings) can enjoy a breakfast of cereals, toast, croissants, yoghurts and fruit as well as a changing hot option such as bacon and eggs or, in winter, porridge.

2013_Dining_hallLunches can be tailored to preference and to appetite.  Each day a freshly made soup is on offer.  Main courses offer a choice of a meat or meat-free centrepiece, with a suitable, usually fresh, vegetable accompaniment.  If this fails to please, there is pasta with a daily changing sauce, or jacket potatoes with beans.  A further option is the salad bar: a choice of protein items can be accompanied by any or all of a range of seven or eight salad sides.  To follow, there is a choice of hot or cold desserts, or, for a lighter end to the meal, pupils may have jelly, fresh fruit salad, a piece of fresh fruit or home-made yoghurt.

Boarders’ supper is served in the evening, and is available for day pupils who have a late evening commitment if it is pre-booked.  Again, there are hot meat based and vegetarian dishes, with salad as an alternative, and a dessert to choose from. The supper menus can be downloaded below.

Almost all diets can be catered for, either for cultural, medical or religious reasons.  Our Catering Manager is always happy to discuss your child’s particular requirements. Holroyd Howe has a “no nuts” policy that ensures that those with severe nut allergies are not compromised.
