We are delighted to take this opportunity to introduce you to Olive Dining - we are your school’s catering provider from September 2023

Here at Olive, we are passionate and committed in providing the most nutritious and delicious school meals.

Our food is always freshly prepared on site, using the highest quality ingredients.

We offer exciting and innovative menus which run in 3-weekly cycles, each of which contain a variety of hot
dishes with different concepts. Our cold deli bar also offers plenty of delicious, fresh salad options with a selection of freshly filled sandwiches and baguettes.

In addition to our lunchtime menus we provide an extensive array of food choices from breakfast to home time, which may include morning break items, or grab and go snacks from outside pod areas.

We have a dedicated onsite catering team who are skilled and trained in creating all our menus and dishes. They are also knowledgeable to respond to any queries students may have.
