Catering

At Box Hill School, we recognise how important mealtime is for our day students as well as our boarders. We appreciate that it is important to you to know that we are providing the very highest standards of school food for your child. Founded in 1997 by Nick Howe and Rick Holroyd, Holroyd Howe is a leading independent school caterer and the company brings a wealth of experience in delivering nutritious and creative food.

Each day, the menu will include a wide variety of ingredients, cuisines and culinary styles to encourage our pupils to try new things and enjoy a balanced diet. Full of creative ideas, Holroyd Howe will also run interactive food demonstrations, theme days and cookery classes for a fun, hands-on approach to food education. The friendly catering team are experienced in handling all dietary and allergy needs and will be on hand to answer any questions you or your child might have.

 

FRESHLY PREPARED

We ensure the structure and content of all our menus promote the wellbeing of everyone we serve.

We adhere to the principle of ‘getting the balance right’, which simply means having enough fruit and vegetables, fibre and starchy foods, moderate amounts of dairy food and meat, fish, eggs and beans whilst avoiding too much fat, sugar and salt.

HEALTHY HABITS

Nothing processed, nothing added – just honest, delicious food every day. By actively promoting fresh produce and creating an interest in the food we offer, we naturally steer pupils towards the healthier choices on our menus.

We also offer a wide variety educational programmes that improve the overall knowledge and awareness of healthy eating so that those we serve can make informed choices throughout the school day.

 

SUSTAINABILITY

We believe that we are all responsible for the environment around us, and we need to do what we can to protect it. We deliver sustainability education, from assemblies to interactive in-person lessons to live demos.

We instil positive food and sustainability habits that will last pupils beyond their education journey.

FUN WITH FOOD

We aim to engage pupils and students with food and educate them on ingredients, cooking, nutrition and sustainability through fun activities such as

  • Tasting Tables
  • Chef Demonstration
  • Theme Days
