Food and Dining

Our dedicated on-site catering team is led by Catering Manager, Phil Strongman who, along with his team, caters for all dietary requirements. The main dining hall at Rendcomb benefits from splendid views across the Churn Valley offering an ideal setting for meals. Nursery children are catered for in a bespoke dining room within the Junior School.

Lunch is inclusive in the school fees for all pupils and offers a different menu every day on a three week cycle. A fresh salad bar, cold meats, cheese, homemade soup and fruit is always available with changing hot options and deserts. Drinking water and fruit squash is also available for pupils.

The catering team also prepare special meals and decorate the dining hall for annual events such as Chinese New Year, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Boarders take all their meals in the dining hall but also have provisions in their House which includes bread, spreads and other snacks. In addition to the well-balanced meals on offer, Boarders also have occasions when treat meals are offered at tea time.

Please note these are example menus and are subject to change.
