Our Catering Provider : ABM


A word from ABM, our caterers:

School meals and your child’s happiness and success are a straightforward equation for abm catering: your child deserves the best quality and nutritionally balanced food to be able to achieve excellence at school. Your child’s well-being is important to us, so our team of chefs have prepared a whole range of healthy and delicious dishes.

Our menus reflect the seasons to ensure we can always use the freshest ingredients, locally sourced wherever possible. We always provide two hot main meals—one of which is vegetarian—plus a jacket potato with a choice of toppings. A full salad bar and a choice of fresh bread is also available to complement your child’s meal.

Our chefs have been working hard to create a special theme day calendar, featuring a variety of promotions throughout the year. Look out for the school’s theme days, with full details of the latest events appearing monthly.
