The catering provision at Forest Preparatory School is managed by The Brookwood Partnership.
Founded in 1996 by Kate Martin, Sue Parfett and the late Graham Sibthorp, Brookwood is recognised today as one of the UK’s leading independent schools' caterer. We currently supply 45,500 fresh meals each school day to over 90 independent schools.
Kate, Sue and Graham set out to pioneer much-needed change in school catering. They put chefs back into school kitchens and began offering a fresh food service with homemade, healthy meals that children want to eat. Over the years, their focus on people development has also helped people see the benefits and opportunities that come from working in a school catering environment.
Brookwood is recognised as an employer of choice and an Investor in People. We’ve been ranked four times in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For, our highest and most recent ranking being 2nd place. We were also the first schools' caterer to be awarded the top-level, three-star ‘Food Made Good Award’ by The Sustainable Restaurant Association.

I would like to say that my time at Forest Prep School has been amazing and I hope that everyone that joins the school now and in the future has the same amazing experience that I have had.
It is hard to imagine walking in to the grounds of a more vibrant and happy school. Even before meeting any of the staff or children, there is a warmth to the atmosphere that exudes contentment, safety and success.
I am continuously impressed with my son’s academic and social development. The progress he's made in a short space of time is impressive and a credit to the quality and consistency of teaching and pastoral care.
Forest Preparatory School is warm and welcoming and a great place to work. Every teacher knows every child by name and the sense of community is felt very strongly by the children, teachers and parents alike.
