School Lunch

A great education needs to be fuelled by great food!

At The Gregg School, Holroyd Howe (specialist independent school and college caterers) provide delicious and nutritious food freshly prepared on site daily for our students. 

Created in 1997 Holroyd Howe is an independent caterer operating exclusively in the independent schools’ market with a commitment to provide great fresh food served by well-trained people who care.


We use the best British ingredients, nothing processed, nothing added. We source locally and have established partnerships with Hampshire farmers, producers and artisan food suppliers so that our chefs have the best, freshest available produce to create delicious seasonal dishes.

Healthy eating and food allergies

We wholeheartedly encourage a healthy lifestyle within our schools. We adhere to the principle of ‘getting the balance right’; providing enough fruit and vegetables, protein, fibre and starchy foods whilst limiting fat, sugar and salt.

Food Allergies in the Gregg School

Our goal is to help pupils of all ages enjoy balanced meals. If your child has an allergy or food intolerance please do let us know, we are experienced in catering for many different diets and our trained teams will provide them with an alternative meal, ensuring their dietary needs are met.

How we manage food allergies

We are a nut-free school. All medical information is shared with the necessary staff members who need to know about any students with specific dietary requirements. This includes:

  • Allergy/intolerance form, which is shared with catering staff and the first aid officer;
  • A photograph of the child, along with details of their allergy in the kitchen or serving area;
  • Individual healthcare plans were produced. Updated yearly, or after any change in circumstance;
  • Spare AAI’s in school (2);
  • Students should carry their own AAI’s on them at all times.
  • Storage of AAI’s in school;
  • Expiry dates of AAI’s.
  • Instructions for staff members on how to use AAI’s.

Where does our food come from?

We buy 100% of our meat and 90% of our fruit and vegetables from UK sources; Our eggs come from RSPCA Freedom Farm Assured sources only and are certified with the Red Lion Quality Mark; All our milk is produced from Red Tractor accredited farms; All our fresh bakery products are made on-site or by local bakers close to the School; No fish on the IUCN threatened species red list is used within our menus and our suppliers are prohibited from sourcing “At Risk” fish.


A range of healthy and filling snacks are on offer during the mid-morning break.


At lunchtimes, there are two main meal choices each day (including a vegetarian option). In addition, pasta dishes, jacket potatoes, salads, puddings and fresh fruit are available daily.
