We will be looking at setting up our gardening club with the aim of having an onsite garden so we can grow our produce and work with the sustainability team.

Throughout this year, we will be working with BaxterStorey; we plan to further develop menus, flavours and styles of service to create a new catering strategy that will take us into a new long-term contract tender. We need your input and feedback to make this work. To let us know what you think, scan the QR codes in the catering outlets or drop us an email at

We will be commencing the Catering Working Group, made up of staff and students, to discuss our needs, and you can complete our survey to give your opinions on our catering needs.
