Stanley Park High is a flourishing, vibrant secondary school for students of all abilities, which puts ‘igniting a passion for learning’ at the heart of every aspect of the school’s business.  The school has recently been shortlisted as TES Secondary School of the Year.

Housed in a state of the art building with superb facilities, the school has been widely recognised for its ‘innovative and imaginative approach’ and student-centered structure.  Ofsted recently described the school’s focus on student personal development, behaviour and welfare as ‘outstanding’, while the school’s progressive approach has also led to it being show-cased as an example of forward thinking curriculum design, with students in years 7 and 8 following our unique, bespoke project based learning curriculum.  This experiential approach continues into year 9 when students are able to choose taster sessions from a menu of 26 options choices which include both the academic and the vocational such as hospitality, vehicle technology and horticulture, with external business links ensuring all projects are ‘real’.  The school prides itself on this development of a business and ‘real-world’ mindset amongst its students, which our partner-organisations should aim to build upon and reflect.

249320We intend to offer our catering service in open tender for a new contract in September 2016. The school invites creative and innovative proposals to further develop our food and service offers.  We are also looking to develop the services provided to those who use our extensive on-site sporting and leisure facilities during the evenings, weekends and school holidays.

Our catering partner will help us develop an innovative and commercially successful service for our students and staff, which fully understands, and can reflect our unique student-centered and progressive ethos.  Opportunities for student and local involvement should be considered including use of school-grown and local produce, work experience and curriculum links.

Suitably qualified catering companies are invited to submit proposals. More information, a copy of the timetable and Invitation to Tender can be obtained from Stephen Grosvenor (stephen@grosvenorassociates.co.uk  07885 217077).
