Meet the Team
We foster a culture of support and encouragement so that our service continually reflects our curiosity and desire to improve. Our catering teams at each school are supported by the considerable strength and depth of knowledge of our support office and operations specialists.
We make time for our teams, which means we nurture them with our training programmes and reward their talent to allow them the freedom to truly express their creativity. We’re always on the lookout for new and improved ways of working, with our school communities at the heart of everything we do.
Lucy is an experienced operator with a long background in hospitality. Years spent developing F&B concepts for airports across the world has grown her love and interest in food.
Lucy’s belief that all children should foster a healthy relationship with food from a young age drives her vision to ensure Holroyd Howe retain their position, not only as market leaders in catering within the independent sector, but also as educators of children in the importance of the relationship between gut and mind.
A wealth of experience surrounds our senior leadership team, having been instrumental in the growth and development of Holroyd Howe.
Not only do our founder, chief executive and directors have a genuine love of food, they also bring inspirational expertise and a drive to ensure that everyone at Holroyd Howe is immersed in our supportive, energetic and joyful culture.
In addition, internal succession and empowering people to be the best versions of themselves is a value which our MD Lucy holds dear and she drives an agenda with training and career development at the core.
From operations management to food development and everything in between, our regional support team is filled with real foodies with a drive to make a difference.
