School Meals

Our external caterers, Aramark, provide excellent school lunches which are tasty, nutritious and great value for money at about £2.65 for a full meal and a drink.

Aramark use a cashless system which will involve a finger imprint to access each child’s account. More information will be given to you to let you know how you can top up and add money to your child’s account. Laura Bennett, the Catering Manager, is happy to discuss any special dietary needs.

There are places to eat for pupils who want to bring their own lunch.
Years 7, 8 and 9 must stay on campus during lunchtimes.
Years 10 and 11 need parental permission to go off campus.
There are water dispensers in school for pupils to use. It would be helpful for your child to bring a re-useable bottle. This can cut down the cost of lunch!
