Welcome to Chartwells – who provide the catering service to our school

Here’s a short message from them:

As the leading provider of catering services to schools across the UK we believe school lunches should be freshly prepared, great-tasting and attractively presented to engage pupils to have a great experience during meal times. Our menus are fully nutritionally checked by our expert team led by David our Executive Chef and Marnie our Nutritionist and the team, to meet the Government’s school food standards.


Seasonal and nutritionally balanced healthy menus will change twice a year offering variety along with new dishes to stimulate inquisitive minds. We also understand our responsibility of the importance of educating young people on good nutrition and healthy lifestyles via our education programmes. We’re proud of our support for local and British suppliers – sourcing the best possible quality ingredients and produce from well respected, stringently selected and continually audited farmers and growers.

Food Allergies

We’ve always taken the issue of food allergies extremely seriously. If any pupil has an allergy, an intolerance or a medical condition that calls for a special diet our in-house expert team of nutritionists make sure pupils are fully and safely catered for with special menus, procedures and local training. We need to ensure we have all your children’s catering requirements taken care of.

Chartwells are extremely excited to be given the opportunity to become the catering providers in your school and we look forward to meeting pupils, the schools and parents. Please look out for our three weekly menu cycle and our introduction to school meals booklet that will be distributed via your school.
