Our School Meals
Secondary school pupils need healthy, nutritionally balanced food to help their minds and bodies grow. That's why our menu development team of executive chefs and nutritionists go to great lengths to create nutritionally balanced dishes that are familiar and appealing to young diners.
Our specialist team analyse meals against government school food standards to ensure we are meeting all guidelines and requirements and where necessary, we can provide menus for pupils with special dietary needs.
We monitor food trends throughout the UK and work closely with our development chefs and suppliers to continuously provide a great range of innovative food and product offers as well as great value for money.
Our secondary school menus are full of fresh, tasty and nutritious meals created by our highly-trained team of catering experts.
Fresh fruit, salad and drinking water are available every day along with a jacket potato option, and all our bread is home-made daily.
