Greetings and welcome!!

Chef Whittle






A quick introduction is called for, I am John Whittle or Chef Jon and I am the Director of Catering here at Ormiston Horizon Academy. I have been a chef for over 28 years and my passion for food started whilst I was at high school in my home economics class. Opportunities have led me to work in pubs, restaurants, health care establishments, industrial contract catering and the education sector (there was even time to work for the mighty potters too). I have been fortunate enough recently to compete in chef competitions on a national scale and to be able to work with the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts on their Adopt a Chef Scheme, which sees professional chef’s visiting schools to deliver sessions on healthy eating.

I draw my inspiration for menus and food offerings from what I see happening on the high street. I’d say that we can replicate what happening on the high street here in the academy with the street food trend and products that we see out there been sold on our shelves too. We will be bringing in new items and food concepts as the year moves on.

If any student, parent or staff member have any suggestions or want to discuss the offer then please do get in touch.

I’d like to thank you all for your continued support.

Chef Jon
