STEP Head of Catering

Suzanne Martin

I have worked for STEP since April 2012 and I manage all of our on site catering teams.
I have worked in catering for over 12 years and enjoy working with the kitchen staff and being part of STEP.
Our aim is to encourage children to make healthy choices, but also giving them the opportunities to experience a wide variety of different cuisines.


STEP Head Cook

Karen Wells

I have always had a passion for food, ever since I was little and completed a 2-year Catering Course after leaving school.

Since then I have worked in various catering establishments from Hotels to Restaurants.

I joined School Catering in 2016 and joined STEP in January 2017, working at Burfield and Phoenix Academies.

I am currently overseeing the smooth running of the kitchens in East Sussex.

I really enjoy working in a school environment, encouraging the children to try new things and making food fun!
