More than just school & education catering

We also provide the vital support services that are needed for education staff to perform to the best of their ability in their roles. From facilities management to kitchen cleaning services, we ensure our clients’ staff and students can work and learn in clean, safe and pleasant environments.

Experienced school & academy caterers

For over a quarter of a century, Chartwells has focused on helping those in education to build strong bodies, sharp minds and lead long, healthy lives. It’s our aim for every student to have the same opportunity to develop and make a positive contribution at school, and it’s our job to help them do it. We do this by providing fresh, healthy and great tasting meals throughout the day.

Food for thought

Our dedicated nutritionists and chefs bring food to life through their passionate work, carefully curating menus to meet the diverse palates, dietary requirements and preferences in schools, colleges, and universities nationwide. We also run a range of engagement programmes including nutrition-focussed activity clubs and workshops that encourage healthy relationships with food and positive eating habits amongst children and young people.
