A ROCESTER school has been honoured with national award for its catering service and the food on offer to pupils.
Abbotsholme School was awarded a Gold CAP Award for the third year running for its exceptional standards.
The CAP (Continuing Advancement Programme) Awards recognise excellence in catering and are regarded as the highest measure of quality, safe best practices and service.
Headmaster Steve Fairclough said: “This gold award is recognition of the hard work of the catering team and I want to congratulate each and every one of them. The food and the quality of service available here to the pupils is of the very highest standard.
“We are most fortunate that we are surrounded by our own working farm and we are passionate about delivering ‘farm to fork’ food – the highest quality possible.”
Ian Jackson, managing director of the CAP Awards said the catering team at Abbotsholme had impressed him with their attention to detail.
He said: “The food on offer was superb. The sauce with the home-made meatballs was beautifully balanced at supper, the chocolate sponge and fudge sauce at lunch was moist and full of flavour and the lunch time home-made soup stilton and broccoli divine.
“The service was also excellent and staff seemed to have a good interaction and relationship with the pupils creating a wonderful, friendly atmosphere. They are worthy winners of a gold award.”
