Clayesmore School – Dorset
Nick Church, Catering Manager
Arthur David are proud to work in partnership with such a values-driven and prestigious school. Our partnership began in 2005 and they say that they would recommend Arthur David to anyone – in their own words to a prospect ‘go for it!”
We know that the highest priority for a catering manager in an educational setting is quality produce, followed closely by competitive pricing – and we continually meet these needs order after order.
Clayesmore School is a school founded in 1896 on values. Yes to the academic subjects and yes to the sporting prowess but Founder Lex Devine believed that children deserved an all-round education. It’s no surprise then that when Clayesmore finds partners whose values match their own they form strong and long lasting relationships.
Nick Church, catering manager adds “We were lucky enough to be shown around the depot in March and I was surprised with the scale of their operation and were impressed with how incredibly professional and organised they are. We have a great working relationship with our rep, Steve Baker, who is always on hand to help out, if needed.
The customer excellence team are of a gold standard, and with a higher customer to account manager ratio than any of their competitors.
If anything has been forgotten in our order, Arthur David will rectify it straight away. Likewise, if we need a certain product that day they will bring it to us, despite being over an hour away!
Arthur David have always been very reliable. Nothing is a problem and our needs are always dealt with quickly and professionally.
We look forward to many more years together, feeding young minds and tummies!”
