We are proud to announce the catering has been brought back within the school from January 2014. We provide a cafeteria style service at mid morning and lunch times with a modern pasta and jacket potato bar also available.

All our products are in line with the Government guidelines and come from local suppliers listed:

East Kent Foods
“East Kent Foods is a family run business established in 1992, based in Canterbury and is owned and run by Bill & Tina Plews. Our aim is to provide an excellent service allied with competitive prices to catering establishments throughout East Kent.

All our staff are a credit to East Kent Foods and are a big part of our success with many having been with us for many years. We understand the correct balance required of quality, pricing and service for a successful relationship with our customers. Being local enables East Kent Foods to have a personal relationship with our customers, unlike the National Companies.

Since 1996 we have been a member of the Sterling Supergroup, a national buying group made of family run businesses like ourselves, with an annual turnover in excess of £500million. This buying power enables us to benefit greatly when negotiating with suppliers allowing us to pass these savings on to our customers. We are also able to offer exclusivity on all Sterling Own Label products in this area, a range that is growing rapidly”.
