The catering service is currently outsourced to a catering contractor.

The contract will commence on 1.2.2017 for a period of three years, with an option to extend on a 1 +1 basis.
This contract will be nil cost in nature with the successful contractor developing the team and market to move forward.
We are seeking a suitably experienced contractor who has current experience of working within the secondary school or college market place, ideally with a strong operational base within the North of England, thus allowing for responsive, contract support and management of catering staff.
The successful tenderer will be required to formally report each month on catering standard performance and operational matters, ensuring the senior management team at the School is fully informed about all issues related to delivery of the catering service.
