Catering

Feeding your child’s independent mind

The people from our catering partner, BaxterStorey, are so enthusiastic about the quality and variety of food they prepare each day at Glenstal Abbey School that we felt it was best to let them tell their own story.

BaxterStorey is proud to be Glenstal Abbey’s caterer, providing nourishing, varied and tasty food for the students in our care. Our carefully planned, nutritionist-approved menus are designed to provide healthy, appetising and interesting food that can be enjoyed by all.

On a daily basis we provide all students with a delicious and nutritious breakfast, lunch and supper, with a special focus on fresh foods that positively contribute to the boys’ health and wellbeing.  At Glenstal Abbey our chefs source fresh, seasonal produce and ingredients from local suppliers to prepare and serve dishes that are full of flavour and nutrition, and we also use fruit and vegetables grown on the grounds of Glenstal Abbey. 

We take our responsibility towards the boys’ health and development most seriously and ensure that we cater fully for the special dietary needs and allergies of all boys within the school.

We also understand the importance that food and meal times play within the boys’ day, not only for nourishment but also as an opportunity to communicate and to share ideas and stories with their fellow students.  With this in mind, meal times in the school refectory are sociable occasions that enable the boys and staff to communicate freely in a warm and comfortable atmosphere.

Our chefs not only design attractive and enjoyable menus for the boys, they also organise events to inform the boys about the importance of good food and maintaining a healthy diet, including juice and smoothie demos, Meet the Grower Day’, special themed suppers and cooking demonstrations.
