At Sherfield school, we know that nutritious and delicious food is key to each child’s wellbeing.

Napoleon believed ‘an army marches on its stomach’, which is why we put such an emphasis on high quality, delicious food to provide the energy that drives our pupils and staff.

We have breakfast options every day of the week with a brunch on Sundays. This includes a selection of everyday items as well as a smoothie of the day, pastry and toast stations, cereal and yogurt bars and a hydration station.

We have bespoke lunch and dinner menus for hot meals, salad options, a packed lunch offer and desserts.

We celebrate special festivals such as Thanksgiving and St Patrick’s Day with themed meals and have regular tasting days where we celebrate a particular ingredient.

We are a nut aware school and can cater to students with other allergies and food intolerances. Please let us know if your child has any specific food requirements. 
We work with specialist contract catering company Thomas Franks, a leading independent school caterer who make sure that all our food is locally sourced. They only source red tractor British meat and sustainable fish that is MSC certified. They endeavour to buy British fruit and vegetables where possible. They support Fair Trade products to ensure a fair deal for growers. Their milk and cream is supplied by British farmers and they only use free-range eggs.

Part of the way they encourage healthy eating is to provide beautifully cooked food with plenty of variety and fresh fruit and vegetables.

"My boys absolutely love the food on offer at Sherfield. They love the themed days, the pasta bar, the variety of hot meals the salad bar and say the choice is incredible. It is a point of conversation daily what they have had for lunch at school."
