Catering Academy wins £2.25m deal with Waterhead Academy

Foodservice company Catering Academy has won a five-year contract worth £2.25m with secondary school Waterhead Academy, in Oldham, near Manchester.

There is also a specially-designed kitchen on site that serves both halal and non-halal food in order to help cater for the students' various diet requirements, and the company has also opened a "private dining room" restaurant for students who achieve especially good results, in a bid to foster a strong work ethic.

Louise Wymer, founder director at Catering Academy, said that the company was well-placed to provide healthy meals that "can really make a difference to young people's educational development".

She added: "It's important that pupils have a relaxed area where they can enjoy break time in comfortable surroundings. We feel we've been able to successfully implement this approach at Waterhead Academy."

Catering Academy was formed in 2004 by experienced caterers Kevin Cannon, Louise Wymer and Stacey Rose. Last year was very successful, including a £3.5m contract extension at Adam's Grammar school in Shropshire, and a combined £18m worth of business over three years after deals with Cambridge Regional College, Reading College and four academy schools.
