I really enjoy lunch time at school and can’t wait to get into the dining room to see what is on the menu. The different zones often mean I am spoilt for choice.Pupil’s comment
Set in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside, Chellaston Academy is our flagship site for our Eat Street concept. Working in partnership with the school, ABsolutely Catering completely transformed the dining experience and food service for the 750 pupils attending the school.
Securing the food service contract in 2013, our design team spent the summer months re-designing a number of areas at the school; these included the main dining room, the sixth form room and creating removable stand-alone kiosks for older pupils seeking a healthy grab and go option.
To ensure maximum take up of Eat Street could be achieved, our Food Development Team also spent time talking to the pupils, the teachers and parents. As such we have been able to understand everyone’s food requirements in a relatively short period of time and deliver a food style tailored to their needs.
ABsolutely Catering have totally transformed the dining experience at Chellaston. As a result, we have seen pupils using the facilities increase by 36% in just 3 months. Our pupils and equally their parents continually tell me how much they enjoy the feel of Eat Street and the fresh food styles offered by ABsolutely on a daily basis.Head Teacher’s comment
