Staying Ahead of the Curve in Catering

MYA is raising its game in the independent education sector: and there’s never been a better time.

Right now, all schools have been forced to transform their catering routines – with more distancing, staggered mealtimes, and new levels of protection for both staff and pupils. 

In a time of change, there’s never been a better time to take a fresh look at your catering systems and (of course) costs.

Bev Lusty, who is well-known to many bursars, financial directors and heads, has just been appointed as our new Consultant Director, Education.

Bev brings unrivalled experience and operational expertise, based on many years supporting ISBA-member schools. She’s on a mission to ensure that clients receive fresh support and advice which is relevant to our community.

Bev says:

“This sector is unique. Each operation has differing qualitative and financial challenges; COVID-19 has brought these into sharp focus. While your own staff are working flat-out on the daily tasks, the MYA educational team can give you a fresh approach, based on wide experience: we offer insight, knowledge, understanding and a keen commercial eye.For peace of mind, in an ever-complex world, and the assurance that ‘all is well’, we would be delighted to assist”.

An MYA review of your outsourced or in-house operation is a great starting point, and the Autumn term is the perfect time to perform a ‘health check’ on your operating model. Contact us today: 

In line with the times, we’ll set up a video call!

  • If all companies who serve the independent school sector had your breadth of vision and openness of mind, I have little doubt that the sector would be a richer and more exciting place to be.
