At the Sixth Form College Colchester we manage our catering services 'in house' giving us total freedom to offer a modern, fresh and above all else tasty daily menu. We use fresh locally sourced products including meat from a local butcher, fruit and vegetables from a local farm and bread from Colchester bakeries. This also allows us to give you fantastic value for money and great quality food at great prices!
