Food is a very important part of the day, especially for a school with a large boarding community. We have our own team of fabulous caterers who produce a wonderful and varied range of food for the children. Our Head of Catering, Boney Sebastian has even been mentioned by name in the Tatler School Guide!
Eating at Hazlegrove is about more than the delicious and nutritious meals, it is about sitting down together, talking about our day and enjoying great food and even better company.
Break time is around 10am and the Pre-Prep children have a healthy snack of freshly baked bread with milk or water and a variety of fruits are available as well. Lunch for the Pre-Prep children is always a hot main course with a choice of vegetables and there is a selection of puddings and fruit to follow (the cold bar is available to children once they move on to Year 3).
Vegetarian options are always available and children following special diets on medical grounds can usually be catered for. The children are encouraged to try new foods, especially on one of our themed days, and for those still hungry there is always freshly baked bread.
For the Foundation Stage children there is an additional snack time during the afternoon and if the children have been cooking they often sample their own creations at this time.
Children are encouraged to drink water regularly throughout the day and children staying after 4.00pm have a snack of sandwiches and fruit before starting their after-school clubs and activities.
