Prep School Catering
Catering at Bournemouth Collegiate School,
as across the whole UCST Group, is provided by the Brookwood
Partnership. The Prep School has its own fully-equipped kitchens where all
meals are freshly prepared each day, and has a large dining room. There are
always hot, cold and vegetarian options and the kitchen operates on a nut-free
basis. Hot and cold desserts along with a fruit option are offered each day. In
Kindergarten and Reception parents are asked to choose the option for their
child. From Year 1 onwards children can then make their own choice but if
parents desire a hot meal a lunchtime for their child then we will respect
their request and encourage their child to choose a hot meal.

Our Caterers – the Brookwood
The Brookwood Partnership provides catering across the whole of
the UCST Group of schools. They are passionate about the feeding of children and consider
it their responsibility to encourage pupils towards a balanced diet by creating
attractive, nutritious menus and informing them how to eat healthily. The
approach focuses on educating, encouraging and promoting a healthy diet for
each individual child's future health and well being.
Brookwood Managers and Chefs are
trained using their own specific training course, offering healthy eating with
a balance between current eating trends, good nutrition and fresh home-cooked
food. To achieve this, they use Brookwood’s own Food Standards Manual and actively
encourage the promotion of the “Eating for Life” campaign, which includes a
dedication to cooking without salt, promoting fresh vegetables and helping
ensure pupils eat their “Five a Day”.
At Bournemouth Collegiate
School our menus are created
to ensure that this dedication to food and pupils is achieved. We offer an extensive salad bar on both sites,
with fresh fruit and home-baked bread available daily. Our menus are
continually reviewed to ensure that they provide food the pupils enjoy whilst
ensuring a variety of dishes, especially for our boarders.
