II.2.4) Description of the procurement: About Haggerston School:

Haggerston School is a co-educational, inclusive, learning community with high standards and high expectations enabling everyone to succeed. The school's mission is to ensure that all students, whatever their starting point, make exceptional progress and develop into capable, creative, confident and caring young citizens.

The school has approx. 1025 pupils aged between 11-19 with a total capacity of 1,100. Out of this total approx. 42% of pupils are entitled to free school meals (FSM).

Typical services include: breakfast, mid-morning break, lunch, an all-day coffee cart and occasional hospitality. However, due to COVID-19 the school has stopped the provision of breakfast and mid-morning break service but will definitely reintroduce these once restrictions are lifted.
The school is a strong supporter of the London Living Wage (LLW) and the successful contractor will be required to ensure all catering staff are paid the prevailing LLW rate.

Basis of Contract:

One of the schools aims is to eliminate the small fixed subsidy it currently pays for the provision of catering service and as such is keen for bidders to consider creative ways that this may be realised. As the impact of COVID-19 in schools is likely to be fully resolved by September 2021 it is envisaged that the contract will remain on an annual fixed priced basis. However, the school recognises that uncertain trading conditions may exist and so hindering a fixed priced arrangement from being sustainable. If such conditions are present then the contract will initially commence on a Cost-Plus basis with guarantees on gross profit % and total labour cost. Over the first term (Sept – Dec 2021) the school will then work with the successful contract to establish the most appropriate budget model that enables the schools to achieve its aim.
The term of the contract will be for an initial period of three years with an option to extend up to a further period of 2 years.
The sales turnover of the contract over the initial period is estimated at £750,000.


The appointed Supplier will have significant experience of delivering healthy and enticing catering services within secondary schools and possess an aptitude to successfully growing sales by increasing pupil uptake.
With a strong operational base in London, the Supplier must ultimately have proven experience of managing an efficient catering service through the application of best practice and innovation and as a result will be expected to deliver sustained quality and ‘best value’ to the school throughout the contract term.
