Feeding the
Mind and Body

Delicious in taste, generous in choice and well balanced in nutrition. We are proud to work with our catering suppliers, Holroyd Howe, who specialise in high quality catering for independent schools.

All dietary requirements are catered for and the catering team work closely with the pupils and the Health Centre to take extra care of pupils with allergies and intolerances. There is a choice of main dishes, desserts, fruit and salads every lunchtime. The catering team also have a ‘food of the week’ which encourages children to try new things.

Special Occasions

Sometimes our Dining Hall is unrecognisable as it is transformed into a Christmas Dinner Grotto, adorned in flags for country-themed days or awash with House colours for House events!
