Catering at St. Francis’ College

A balanced and nutritious diet is key to the wellbeing of all children and young adults.  At St. Francis’ we recognise the importance of healthy eating and use the renowned catering company Holroyd Howe to provide a varied and delicious menu.  Holroyd Howe offers the highest standard of fresh, quality food to independent school pupils across all school ages, whether they are day pupils or boarders.  Further information can be found by visiting their website

Their expert staff serve three meals a day (brunch and evening meal at weekends), which are on a three-week menu rotation.  In addition to this they also provide staples for the boarding house, including bread, cereal, fruit, milk, tea and coffee, packed lunches for school trips and hot and cold buffets for conferences and meetings. 

The Sixth Form also benefit from their own café run by Holroyd Howe.  Every morning break the Sixth Form girls are able to buy a selection of freshly baked cakes and biscuits alongside a range of high quality hot drinks.  It is the perfect informal atmosphere for the girls to relax in.

School menus are created with input from staff and students via the School Council. As well as catering for vegetarians St. Francis’ kitchens can provide varied and balanced choices for a number of other special dietary requirements including, but not limited to, coeliac, diabetic, lactose intolerant and low cholesterol.

All year groups take their meals in the dining room, which is located at the heart of the Broadway building.  This light, airy room is the perfect place to relax and enjoy good food. The professional service station allows girls to choose from the wide variety of food on offer.

Hot school lunches are optional for Day pupils and we recognise that some girls do prefer to bring their own packed lunch. Further information about school lunches is sent to all new joiners in their joining packs.
