Our Catering Team

Amanda Rosser

Amanda joined us from Langley Academy in September 2021 as Relief Chef Manager, and we are delighted she has decided to stay at Highdown. Amanda has been a chef for 26 years and been working as a chef in schools for 26 years too. She is looking forward to making big changes at Highdown and creating a fantastic experience for the students to eat.

In her spare time, Amanda is a keen runner and has completed an amazing 17 marathons and has also taken part in a 50-mile ultra marathon!

Oliver Gillas

Oliver joined us from Reading School in November 2021 as Sous Chef. Oliver has been a chef for 24 years and has been a chef in schools for 4 1/2 years. 

We are thrilled he has joined the rest of the catering team at Highdown. He's eager to bring new ideas and delicious cuisine to Highdown. 

In his spare time, Oliver enjoys the theatre, movies, music and travel.  He is a keen Pittsburgh Steelers fan and has travelled to the USA to see them play live.

Against a backdrop of supply chain shortages, Amanda and the team have introduced a broader choice of menu, weekly international themed days and freshly baked cakes. The feedback they have received has been really positive, and they are happy to report an ever-increasing number of visitors to the Gallery. 

All our food is prepared from fresh, including a wide range of main meals (including vegetarian and / or vegan offers), freshly prepared salads, sandwiches and desserts, including fresh fruit. At break times, there are a selection of hot items accompanied by an array of home baked cakes, cookies and muffins.

Café 6 opens at 7.30am every day to Staff and Sixth Formers only.

The Gallery is open from 7:30am - 2pm every day to all students and staff, breakfast in the Gallery from 7:30am.  

Keep your eyes pealed for new promotions, upcoming theme days and big changes.
