It is important that our staff reflect the diversity of our community, and we therefore welcome and encourage applications from people of all genders and sexual orientation, those from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic backgrounds, and those with disabilities.

Our friendly, welcoming Prep school is seeking a creative and talented Chef Manager to lead the catering team and run a busy catering site providing a lunch service to 332 pupils plus staff on a daily basis.

A passion for fresh, quality seasonal produce and excellent knowledge of modern food trends is essential. The ideal candidate will have current experience running a busy catering site offering outstanding food and exceptional service.
