19 February 2024

Sodexo has re-signed a ten-year soft FM contract with private school Wellington College in Berkshire.

The contract is worth approximately £80 million and includes catering, hospitality, retail and domestic services, cleaning, logistics and laundry at Wellington College. The deal also covers hospitality and domestic services for Eagle House, the preparatory and pre-preparatory school located in nearby Sandhurst.

Sodexo has a long history with both schools, having partnered with Wellington College for over 60 years and over 25 years at Eagle House.

Wellington College’s V&A Café is operated by Sodexo, serving 1,000 pupils for breakfast and supper with a lunchtime service for pupils and staff of up to 1,700 covers.

Sodexo also oversees a 130-strong domestic services team for the college, providing cleaning services across offices, classrooms, technical labs, theatre spaces, sports facilities,  the chapel and 17 boarding houses.

Stephen Crouch, Chief Operating Officer at Wellington College said: “We are delighted to renew our long relationship with Sodexo. The Sodexo team is part of the Wellington family and we look forward to continuing our partnership with them. We are especially grateful to Sodexo for the support and investment it has made in transforming the V&A Café which has become the beating heart of the College providing our pupils and staff alike with a food service mirroring that of the high street. 

"Together with Sodexo’s talented team we are proud to continue to offer meal options in both the main dining hall and the V&C Café that are as tasty as they are nutritious, and as balanced as they are diverse.”
