The School is very aware of its responsibility to provide nourishing, appetising food that is appropriate for growing children; we therefore outsource our catering to Independents by Sodexo, and are looked after locally by Amanda Darry, Catering Manager, and her Head Chef, Carl Hoddinott, who, along with a dedicated team, provide all pupils, staff and visitors to the School with a well-balanced and appetising menu.
The team of chefs are highly skilled and they produce quality, nutritious meals from scratch using the best ingredients. All fresh meat, milk and cream purchased is Red Tractor certified and the use of free-range fresh eggs is the norm; wherever possible seasonal British fruit and vegetables are used.
Independents by Sodexo work with a number of recognised international, national and local organisations such as the Fairtrade Foundation, the Rainforest Alliance and the Marine Stewardship Council to identify and source fairly traded and ethically sourced products and develop permanent offers and activities to promote them. Independents by Sodexo chefs only use fish from sustainable sources and are encouraged to use Omega 3-rich fish as often as possible.
One of the catering team is a dedicated pastry chef who bakes all the bread daily on site; this can vary from wholemeal and white batch loaves to specialty focaccias and so on.
In 2015 the catering team was awarded a Gold ‘Eat Out Eat Well’ award from Elmbridge Council, who also gave them a 4 star rating in their last food hygiene visit.
