Our contractor, Harrison Catering Services is delighted to be working in partnership with Dane Court Grammar School to provide all dining services. At Harrison, their vision is to encourage children to explore new tastes and make healthier food choices through their formative years, which will positively influence them throughout their life.

Founded in 1994, they are an award-winning company with an approach, wherever possible, to using quality, sustainably sourced, seasonal fresh food, including ingredients such as British free-range eggs and British-sourced fresh meat and poultry.

Harrison staff play an integral part in the success of their catering service, with learning and development high on our agenda. Training undertaken by the on-site catering team includes how to prepare and serve healthier food to children through their bespoke Eat Well Live Well© training programme.


Harrison offers a Breakfast, Mid-Morning Break and Lunch service daily. The menus are created with local tastes and preferences in mind and offer a wide range of popular, delicious dishes to encourage balanced meal choices full of flavour. You can access the weekly menus below.

Creative chefs also plan and organise enjoyable, additional food experiences with pop-ups, promotions, themed events with links to the school’s curriculum, and cultural and celebration dates to create a fun, engaging and enjoyable dining experience.

Harrison recognises that some children may have an allergic reaction or intolerance to one or more commonly eaten foods and has robust processes to assist the school in managing allergens.  Please click here for more information or contact the on-site Catering Manager.


We operate a cashless catering system, which uses biometrics.

Students choose their meals & snacks and take the items to the till points where they are identified by way of biometric fingerprint recognition technology. The till point then electronically shows the till operator a photo of the student as confirmation of their identity and reported allergens. The student then purchases their meal, as long as they have enough money in their account to cover the cost of the items selected.

You can top up your child’s account using the secure WisePay system. This allows parents to see what their child/(ren) has purchased, and we encourage you to discuss with your child the importance of choosing healthy options.

The student accounts can also be topped up at school using coins or notes at the machine in the canteen. Please note your child’s account must be kept in credit at all times and students and parents can check their balances easily.


Harrison welcomes and values all feedback on the Dane Court Grammar School catering service.  They regularly review their offer to continue to provide a positive dining experience for your child.  If you have any comments or suggestions, please refer these to the on-site Catering Manager.
