A £100,000 investment in catering facilities has seen Clevedon School’s hot food sales soar in the past 18 months.

The school, in Valley Road, sources all of its food from local farms and is all cooked as healthily as possible with a variety of vegetarian options also available to students.

The changes, which included a complete kitchen refurbishment, have had a huge impact with sales of hot food increasing by 600 per cent in the past 18 months.

Headteacher Jim Smith said: “We want students to have some of the best and healthiest food around.

“We are thrilled to be able to invest £100,000 in this area.”

A sixth form bistro café was also created with the money.

Catering company Chartwells, which serves the school, also provides students with money-saving meal deals including a main meal for £1.75 and two courses for £1.95.
