School Dining

We are extremely proud of our catering service at Herschel Grammar School. Our cheerful and vibrant team thrive on the challenge of providing a first class service to students and staff. Every year over the past twelve years the number of pupils choosing to eat with us has increased as has the amount of positive feedback from satisfied students and parents.

In fact many schools seek our help and advice in creating their own service provision.

Herschel Grammar School welcomes the media attention that has been given to school catering. We have always adhered to the principles of healthy eating and our standards of service exceed the government food-based standards.

The phrase “school meals” can have connotations of processed, bland, stodgy or junk food. At Herschel Grammar School however we have a different approach, all our food is freshly prepared and cooked by our own talented team. We have a history of producing high quality traditional and appetising meals for pupils and staff alike.

Our team of dedicated staff are forward thinking and embrace food from diverse cultures, we frequently introduce new recipes (including those of celebrated chefs). Our meals are all based on healthy eating principles of reducing fat, sugar and salt whilst increasing fruit, vegetables, fibre, lean meats and fish. All our meat, fish, vegetables and fruit are sourced from local high quality suppliers wherever possible.

I always welcome feedback and would be delighted to discuss any aspect of the catering provision at Herschel Grammar School.
