Our Catering Contractors Innovate provide an excellent choice of hot and cold meals and tasty snacks for our students, both at break and lunch times.
Our state-of-the-art Diner and light and airy Refectory are popular places for students to meet up and enjoy the food on offer, or a warming drink in the winter. Our Executive Chef, Zoe, is mindful of including several vegetarian and vegan options. Zoe also caters for those students with food allergies or who have special dietary requirements.
Innovate by name and nature. Food choice, flexibility, quality and speed are at the heart of what we do. Inspired by the best and most fashionable high street concepts, we pride ourselves on fusing fantastic quality food with quick service.
Everything has to start with fantastic quality and responsible food. Across our wide, diverse and ever-changing menus, we ensure that everything is safe, sustainable and tastes great. We only source from farmers, wholesalers and catering butchers that are audited to UKAS accredited standards and meet the highest possible assurance levels.
We have a huge variety of really exciting dishes to try! We’re talking about global street food, our famous curry Thursdays, modern vegetarian and vegan, and traditional fish and chips. There’s something for everyone to enjoy at all times of the day.
In addition to great food in great environments, we are committed to becoming an ‘Impact Organisation’ and doing whatever we can to create a better world. We operate a sustainable and responsible business model, minimising packaging (especially plastics), food waste and energy consumption, whilst maximising recycling and composting.
As an Impact Food Group caterer, our vision and values are entirely aligned to working with our schools to create a positive food culture and helping more students eat better food.
We use a cashless Biometric system for purchases where students can pay for their food from a finger scan. Parents can add money onto their child’s account 24 hours a day, on line, so that there is no need for students to bring cash into school. For those students who are entitled to Free School Meals, the finger scanning process works in exactly the same way so that they are not identifiable.
