School Meals

There is a lot of information available on our website in the Catering section about what kind of food is available to purchase each day. You can download the menus each week so that you know when your favourite food is being cooked.

Q: What time can I get food at school?

A: Pupils arriving early may like to buy a range of food from the 'Breakfast Club' in Meet and Eat between 8:20 - 8:40am.

Meet and Eat is again open at the mid-morning break 10:40 – 11:00 as well as offering a full range of meals at lunchtime.

Meet and Eat Opening times:

Q: Can I bring a packed lunch?
A: Yes.

Q: Where can I eat it?
A: In Meet and Eat.

Q: What if I forget my dinner money?
A: Go to the Finance Office and ask for a Dinner Voucher. The money will have to be paid back the next day.

Q: I don't make friends very easily and am a little shy is there anywhere I can go during break and lunch?
A: The Learning Suite.

Q: Can I have a "Smartcard” to pay for my food in school?
A: All students are given a "Smartcard” which is given out on the first day of term.

The first one you get is free and then they charge £2.25 for future ones if you break/damage it.

When you want to top it up, bring in a cheque and ask the Finance Office to put it on your card.
