Haberdashers' Academies Trust South has teamed up with Harrison Catering to provide a nutritionally balanced meal that is exciting for our pupils. 


Since its founding in 1994, Harrison has always been about quality fresh food prepared on-site and served by people who love what they do. 

Harrison understands that what students eat affects their health and their ability to learn and perform in the classroom and on the field. Our catering team provides nutritious, balanced meals, and we work to educate the students on how to make healthier food choices. Our goal is to instil a love and understanding of fresh, healthy food at a young age that will positively influence them throughout life. 

All Harrison staff receive training on how to prepare and serve healthier food through the company’s bespoke Eat Well Live Well© training programme and complete Smile accredited customer service training to ensure the best experience for customers. They are also encouraged and supported to develop professionally throughout their career and the company provides many opportunities to achieve formal qualifications.

The Harrison team works closely with us to tailor menus to the tastes and preferences of the students. It introduces further interest and excitement to menus through themed lunches and dinners ranging from holidays like Easter and Christmas to cuisines from around the world, tying these into the school curriculum whenever possible in a fun and stimulating way.

Harrison have a comprehensive food allergen and intolerance process and the Catering Team work closely with students and their families to address individual dietary needs.
