Award-winning Food

The food that Queen Ethelburga’s students enjoy each day is second to none and supports our healthy eating approach to maximising their potential and improving their wellbeing.

Our award winning in-house catering team create healthy, mouth-watering and varied menus for QE students each week and all special dietary requirements are provided for. Our Food Council, made up of students from across the Collegiate, meet regularly with the catering team to provide their ideas and feedback. This ensures the food that is served is popular with all of our community.

Every morning students can choose from a selection of hot and cold breakfast items.

At lunchtime and evening meals there are always hot and cold ‘light bites’ options, with a full hot meal and pudding should students wish for something more substantial.

At each meal of the day there is always plenty of yoghurt, fresh fruit and refreshments for students to enjoy.

The team also run themed weeks and international days. Firm favourites include the Chinese New Year Feast and the Great British Pie Week. Key celebrations are also marked such as Easter, Christmas, St George’s Day and even World Book Day!

Cooking Clubs for students include; Baking Club, Chinese Cookery, Creative Cooking and Cooking for University. In addition to this, the team run a Growing Club, giving students the opportunity to grow their own produce, harvest it and learn about composting.

Our catering team have recently won the prestigious LACA In House Caterer of the Year Award for 2019.
