The College have three key values that drive this mission. The three values are: aspiration, commitment and success – these are demonstrated throughout the College on a daily basis as the College’s governors, staff and students, live their everyday lives by them.

This is a College where each child will fulfil their true potential and emerge as confident and articulate citizens, proud of who they are and ready to contribute globally.

The College ask students to look beyond their current locality and treat the world as their back garden. Every child has a special and natural talent that is unique to them and the College will support and nurture that talent, so that the students become the best that they can be.

The contract being tendered is for three years in duration from April 2022 until 31 March 2025, with the option to extend the contract term for a further term of up to two years and will operate as a Guaranteed Performance Contract, with the successful Contractor offering the College a guaranteed cost per annum for the provision of catering services. Sovereignty of the cash tariff is to remain with the College for the duration of this contract.

The tender project is seeking to appoint a Contractor whose initiative and innovation will be welcomed for the provision of service within the existing facilities for the teaching and support staff and students on roll, all of whom have a focus on the introduction of exciting new food concepts to satisfy a wide range of tastes and including those with specific dietary requirements. The College would wish the successful contractor to review the current range of services offered and make recommendations accordingly.

The contract offered covers the scope for the provision of all catering services within College, which currently includes breakfast, morning break, lunch and all hospitality and free issue requirements. Free Student meals and hospitality will be charged based on consumption and at net food cost.

The College expects the successful contractor to enable the continued development of catering through the provision of an innovative and healthy food service, with fresh, seasonal, locally sourced ingredients being prepared on-site. The College also expects the successful tenderer to evidence, through their bid, how they shall support and complement its values and support the principles of Keeping Children Safe in Education.

Crown Hills Community College believes that the quality of catering provision is intrinsically linked to a successful learning environment.

Due to the recent establishment that capital depreciation constitutes an embedded finance lease, inward capital investment is not a requirement of this tender. Finance leases are strictly prohibited by the Academies Handbook and thus entering into such an agreement would mean that Schools are in breach of their funding agreements.

It is appreciated that a level of investment may be identified as a requirement of your bid and therefore bidders are encouraged to provide details of such requirements by providing detailed information of the equipment necessary within their tender response, to include the equipment make, model and cost and also a justification of how this equipment will assist in fulfilling the proposal and potential of the service.
