Independent & Boarding School Catering

At Thomas Franks we cater for pupils in a unique, interesting and exciting way. We make every meal special and really encourage pupils to be adventurous and try dishes made only with fresh ingredients that they may not have experienced elsewhere.

Top Class Catering

We work with schools all over the country and offer services to colleges and boarding schools as well independent secondary, preparatory and nursery schools.

Lunch is a dynamic and bustling experience at any school and we make the food match the mood. Our seasonal menus cater for the full spectrum of dietary needs with fresh, seasonal produce that’s cooked with passion and served with pride.

Catering For Every Occasion

Alongside the regular daily offering Thomas Franks also support the catering service for events such as summer balls, charity fund raisers and match teas.

The style of event can range anywhere from formal dining setups to what is affectionately referred to by pupils as ‘posh packed lunches’, which are ideal for summer sports days, rugby tournaments or even polo matches.
