Food and Nutrition

Welcome to Chartwells Independent

We recognise that eating well is important for pupils to be able to function at their best during each day and for their general wellbeing.

Our dining hall serves a good range of appetising and nutritious food – something for all tastes and requirements. Pupils with food allergies and other specific dietary requirements are catered for.

St Paul’s is pleased to welcome award-winning caterers Chartwells Independent from autumn 2023.  With over 50 years’ experience working with independent schools and colleges, Chartwells Independent have maintained their core principle of delivering quality, simple, delicious, and sustainably sourced menus, prepared and served by a talented catering team. Our new school menus are not only tasty but designed with the right ingredients to help pupils reach peak performance, mentally and physically. Menus are created with choice and flexibility to provide a healthy balanced diet, using sustainable sources and minimising waste.

Our independent school food services focus on more than just great-tasting meals. They empower young pupils with the knowledge and confidence needed to establish food habits that will look after their wellbeing long after their time at school comes to an end. We also believe in educating pupils about the importance of living and eating sustainably, while offering great choice, quality and consistency in our food services.
