Leicestershire-based school caterer Wilson Vale has extended its contracts with two schools in the West Midlands.

Prestfelde School, an independent preparatory boarding school in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, and Highclare School in Birmingham, have both furthered their contracts with the firm by five years.

Prestfelde School has retained Wilson Vale since 2009. A team of six provide 290 lunches every day for pupils ranging in age from 3 to 13, as well as teaching and support staff.

The team also prepares breakfast and suppers for school boarders, sports teas for pupils and parents and a variety of hospitality catering at special events.

At Highclare School, a catering team of 15 provides lunches for 650 pupils across the independent day school’s three sites in Erdington and Sutton Coldfield.

Carolyne Vale, co-founder of Wilson Vale, said: “These latest contract extensions show the calibre of the relationships we nurture with our clients.

"We are immensely proud to have retained the business for so many years and all credit must go to our on-site teams and area managers whose impeccable standards, warmth and creativity continue to impact on our success.”

Simon Worthy, bursar at Prestfelde School, added: “I have been delighted with the offering from Wilson Vale during my six years at the school. 

“They have been consistently lauded by pupils, parents, and staff.  The food is high quality and, with the various tastes and themes, is part of the education at Prestfelde. 

“Our on-site Wilson Vale team is part of the Prestfelde family and the regional and headquarters’ team wonderfully support the provision, both indirectly and frequently directly through the year.”
