Bishop’s Stortford College Team Awarded Another Gold CAP

Bishop’s Stortford College gains 6th successive Gold CAP Award – A First for the College Housekeeping and Cleaning team

Following in the footsteps of the College Catering team, who have won six successive Gold CAP Awards, the College Housekeeping and Cleaning team of 25, in collaboration with staff from partner contractor, Nightingales, have also achieved the Gold standard.

Top Scores

The CAP Awards are only presented to organisations who meet the highest standards in housekeeping in the catering and hospitality industry. The College underwent an unannounced assessment earlier this month.  They scored 91.4% for cleanliness and compliance. The benchmark level for Gold is 75%.

Raising Standards

Having reorganised their cleaning operation, a process which has taken almost two years due to the number of locations across the College campus, the Housekeeping team, led by Facilities Manager, Tim Hanks will now be working on areas where they must improve in order to demonstrate the continuous advancement to achieve gold again next year.


Assistant Bursar, Greg Stewart said, “The whole College community is extremely proud of what our housekeepers and Nightingales have collectively achieved. Along with the Gold Awards for catering already received, it demonstrates our commitment to and the great pride we take in the manner in which we look after our pupils and staff.”
