Consultant Director of Education
Bev is our education specialist. From a foundation in catering management for blue-chip clients, she moved into the education sector; now, ten years later, she has worked successfully with more than 60 independent schools. Her experience covers all ages, stages and palates: pre-prep to sixth form, single sex and co-ed, day schools, boarding schools, international schools, language schools and training colleges. Whether your pupils are young children, elite athletes, fastidious eaters or foreign students far from home, she knows how to design a food service that meets their needs – from wrap-around care, to sixth-form cafés.
Bev understands the need to satisfy your many stakeholders, to control costs, and to maximise opportunities. With commercial lets, weddings, commemorative dinners and open days, you can make the most of your facilities without disrupting the life of the school.
Food is a significant part of the whole educational process. Bev has expertise in food safety, allergen management, and education through food. You’re not just feeding your pupils – you’re helping them to develop a healthy diet for life.
Every school is different. Whether your catering is handled in-house or contracted out, Bev will use her experience, flexibility and insight to help you to develop a bespoke offer unique to your school.

In her spare time, Bev loves to travel and has been to some of the most beautiful places in the world. When she’s at home, you’ll find her up on the hills walking her two beloved dogs, Peggy and Shirley: and when the team are at home, you’ll find her up on the terraces supporting Gloucester Rugby Club – the best team in the country!
