Langley School — Catering Services Tender
Langley School is, by any measure, a wonderful place to develop and learn, with very dedicated, talented staff providing a rich, highly successful diet of personal as well as academic development opportunities for all students. Affection and respect for children are evident in all who work here.
The school’s fundamental principles focus on supporting, challenging and inspiring the whole Langley community to be the best we can be. But these are not simply words on paper. Students, staff, parents and governors genuinely give all they can to bring those principles to life every day. Langley is not an ‘exam factory’. Examinations are critically important, of course and students achieve superbly well in them, but the School truly believe in developing young people to deal effectively with the tests of their lifetime, not merely to endure a lifetime of tests.
The contract being tendered is for 3 years in duration from 1 September 2020 until 31 August 2023 and will operate as a guaranteed performance contract, with the successful supplier offering the client a guaranteed return per annum for the provision of catering services. Sovereignty of the cash tariff is to remain with the client for the duration of this contract.
Catering Income 2019/20: Total GBP 295 609.
