School Meals & Nutrition

Healthy food for healthy minds

Freshly prepared each and every day, our tasty and nutritious meals are made from scratch, on our school site by our catering team Thomas Franks Team.

Duncombe School has a healthy and enthusiastic approach to food in school, sourcing the best seasonal produce, both local and regional, from family-owned catering specialists, offering a wide variety of freshly cooked nutritious meals, whatever their dietary requirements

There are a variety of options for our children, including vegetarian dishes and a salad bar. We also include a range of proteins in our weekly menus to support cognitive health, as well as a variety of beans and pulses for plenty of imaginative plant-based options.

A Healthy Variety

Catered for individual children

The Thomas Franks catering team know what makes a great and nutritious lunch, and they provide this daily for the benefit of all our pupils. We ensure an outstanding experience for our children, providing healthy and balanced meals, which support their development and enrich the educational experience. We believe in an innovative and seasonal approach to cooking, using fresh ingredients and cooking from scratch.

Our Head Chef ensures his team are full informed of all our children with special dietary requirements, which helps alleviate any worries or concerns for parents. Some children might need a little extra encouragement to try something new, or there may be certain things for religious or allergy reasons, they cannot have. The Thomas Franks Team are always on hand to provide the best possible care and catering for our children.
