allmanhall proves its ‘Worth’ and secures significant contract extension

allmanhall, the independently owned food procurement expert, is pleased to announce that its contract with Worth School to provide an operational catering consultancy, with food and catering related purchasing, has been extended.

Worth School engaged allmanhall in 2014 after a benchmark demonstrated that a saving of 13.93% was realisable. Recent reviews by Worth have shown that the expertise of allmanhall has delivered impressive results ever since.

Worth School is a co-educational Roman Catholic boarding and day independent school for pupils from 11 to 18 years of age, in West Sussex. The school has over 600 pupils, of whom 300 are full boarding. They proudly operate a very busy and complex in-house catering service.

Worth School’s objectives were to achieve a streamlining of controls within the catering department with a view to improving service levels and consistency of the school’s foodservice offering, and to make cost savings. Working in partnership with allmanhall has achieved these targets with impressive results.


The implementation of allmanhall’s industry-leading catering software platform coupled with trading support from allmanhall, brought financial control and visibility to the team, with administrative efficiencies and cost savings. Supplier tendering and price mitigation identified a further 11.53% improvement, and the financial benefits and savings initiatives delivered by allmanhall contributed to supporting the school’s comprehensive and ground-breaking 2019 refurbishment of their dining facilities.


Day-to-day support is provided from a dedicated Client Support Advisor at allmanhall, handling issues such as supplier resolutions so that the in-house team at Worth can focus on catering operations. Support activities and operational consultancy is habitually reviewed then tailored to fit Worth School’s needs. Additional services provided include regular allergen training by allmanhall’s registered dietitian and food innovation days delivered by allmanhall’s development chefs, on topics ranging from fish and seafood to vegetarian and vegan menu ideas.
