Book now for our Prep Boarding Taster Stay on 9 December

At King's Hall for Prospective Year 7 September 2022

We understand the importance placed on school meals and the part they play in the day, diet and educational experience of our pupils.

Menus are seasonal, reflecting the best of fresh local produce and constructed to offer balance and variety.

 

Food is around-the-clock: a hearty early breakfast and packed meals for trips and outings – high energy snacks for CCF, or Ten Tors. We provide healthy, nutritious, balanced food that will sustain our pupils throughout their busy days whatever their endeavour. All pupils and staff take their meals in the dining hall. Standards of catering are extremely high and all dietary and/or religious needs can be met. The modern servery allows for the provision of a wide variety of choices at each meal.

 

Our Menu

Our menus offer a balance of favourites, such as a traditional roast, but also we also regularly introduce new dishes influenced by current high street trends, tailored to appeal to the changing tastes and palates across the age range. For our boarding pupils, school is also their home and they will eat 21 meals with us each week, so we offer real variety and choice with a fun element at the weekends.

 

Our Catering Team

Independents by Sodexo manage the catering operations at the school. The pupils' health, wellbeing and satisfaction is at the root of everything they do, with meals prepared daily in our kitchen by staff who are very much a part of the school community.

 

 

We also offer regular themed days. In recent times we have celebrated Diwali, Australia Day and offered a taste of Europe with German and Spanish days. Chinese New Year is always firm favourite, but the impromptu Gun Powder Plot and Halloween suppers always go off with a bang!

 

 

Treat Time

Underpinning everything is our ethos of ‘fresh food from scratch’. Menus are seasonal, reflecting the best of fresh local produce and constructed to offer balance and variety, providing students with a range of healthy options but also allowing for treats. Typically, in dining halls we incorporate theatre cooking into the daily experience and create a warm and welcoming environment for students to enjoy their meals. Pupil views on the catering provision are expressed through the cafeteria committee.

 

 

Proud Produce

We source our food responsibly and ethically and are proud to have long standing relationships with our suppliers. Meat and poultry can be traced back to British and Irish farms. We only use Red Tractor certified, fresh British and Irish beef, pork, lamb and poultry. Our fresh British and Irish bacon is made from pork reared on UK and Irish farms. We recently retained our 5 Star status following our regular Environmental Health audit.
