Wilson Vale wins three school contract extensions

Wilson Vale has won contract extensions for three of its independent school catering deals.

It will provide students and staff with meals at Hymers College in Kingston upon Hull (pictured) and Hill House School in Doncaster for a further two years, while its deal at Kingsmead School in the Wirral has been extended by three years.

Kate Walker, director of finance for Hymers College, where the caterer has been providing services since 2005, said: "Over recent years, we needed to evolve the way catering works within the school. Wilson Vale's management team showed flexibility, commitment and commercial focus in how they embraced this period of evolution and as a result we have recently extended our partnership.

"We enjoy a very collaborative approach to developing the catering services and have recently embarked on an exciting events project which we are sure will add value to both Hymers College and Wilson Vale and will further strengthen an already well-established partnership".

At Hill House School, a team of 13 Wilson Vale employees has managed catering for 60 staff and 556 pupils since the contract started in 2011.

Karen Kidney, bursar at Hill House, said: "Our senior management team considers the lunch experience of the children and staff to be pivotal to the school day; not only is it a time to refuel with a varied, tasty and nutritious menu, it's also an opportunity to relax and spend quality time with friends."

Andrew Wilson, co-founder and managing director of Wilson Vale, said: "A culture of nurturing, mentoring and training has been fundamentally ingrained into our business since the very outset so it is very rewarding for us to see that our clients appreciate our unique approach.

"To retain business on the strength of existing performance is a vote of confidence in our quality standards, our relationship with our client and in our ability to deliver our promises throughout the life of our contracts."
