Catering at Carleton High School is run by Chartwells who are the leading provider of catering and support services to schools, colleges and universities in the UK.

Here’s a message from Chartwells about their food and ethos.

As the leading provider of catering services to schools across the UK we believe school lunches should be freshly prepared, great-tasting and attractively presented to engage students.

Our menus are fully nutritionally checked by our expert in-house team and meet the Governments school food standards.

Our food offer combines dining concepts that are vibrant and diverse in terms of our menu offer. Our Global Adventures food offer includes dishes from all over the world, including America, the Caribbean, Japan, Mexico and China. We also understand that it is important to maintain traditional British dishes on the menus such as fish and chips or a roast dinner.

To complement our Global Adventures menu we also offer a large range of hot and cold sandwiches, salads and grab and go items focussed on providing the students with access to healthy, nutritious meals that they can eat quickly and on the go.

Seasonal and nutritionally balanced healthy menus will change twice a year offering variety along with new dishes to stimulate inquisitive minds.
We’re proud of our support for local and British suppliers – sourcing the best possible quality ingredients and produce from well respected, stringently selected and continually audited farmers and growers.

We’ve always taken the issue of food allergies extremely seriously. If any student has an allergy, an intolerance or a medical condition that calls for a special diet our in-house expert team of nutritionists make sure students are fully and safely catered for with special menus, procedures and local training. Please contact if your child requires a specialist diet.
