Catering by Innovate

Innovate by Name and Nature

Food choice, flexibility, quality and speed are at the heart of what we do. Inspired by the best and most fashionable high street concepts, we pride ourselves on fusing fantastic quality food with quick service.

Everything has to start with fantastic quality and responsible food. Across our wide, diverse and ever-changing menus, we ensure that everything is safe, sustainable and tastes great. We only source from farmers, wholesalers and catering butchers that are audited to UKAS accredited standards and meet the highest possible assurance levels.

We have a huge variety of really exciting dishes to try! We’re talking about global street food, our famous Curry Thursdays, modern vegetarian and vegan, and traditional fish and chips. There’s something for everyone to enjoy at all times of the day.

In addition to great food in great environments, we are committed to becoming an ‘Impact Organisation’ and doing whatever we can to create a better world. We operate a sustainable and responsible business model, minimising packaging (especially plastics), food waste and energy consumption, whilst maximising recycling and composting.

As an Impact Food Group caterer, our vision and values are entirely aligned to working with our schools to create a positive food culture and helping more students eat better food. Click here to see a short video from Innovate.

The Pod

In September 2019 QEHS was proud to announce the arrival of the latest food outlet “The Pod”. Continuing to work in partnership with our catering providers Innovate, this facility has a great choice of Grab and Go items for purchase at break, lunch and after school.

Already proving popular, The Pod has taken some pressure off waiting times in our existing areas, allowing students to enjoy extra free time at break and lunch. The Pod will be the only outlet open to purchase food after school (check out the alternative after school menu) and is ideally located for quick access to the bus waiting area. The Pod closes when the last bus has left the site.

The meal deal option is £2.30 for a hot pizza wrap or deli sub roll, with shortbread or flapjack.
