The school operates a canteen service, externally run by Harrison Catering, where students may purchase food to consume on site before school as well as at break and lunch time. We also offer free porridge to all of our students before school.
Unfortunately the school does not have a canteen seating area, but the Hall is made available to students for as much of the year as possible, though this is not the case when external examinations take place in the summer. Fortunately the school has plenty of outdoor seating when the Hall is closed and makes available a limited number of classrooms if the weather is poor.
The biometric cashless catering system uses an algorithm based scan which is not a fingerprint. It allows parents to top up their accounts using Parentmail.
Students are expected to remain on the school premises during lunchtime. No student may leave school at lunchtime without a written note of permission from parents and we will only authorise this in exceptional circumstances.
The School now has planning permission and a new, purpose built canteen will be on site by the end of 2021.
Some examples of menus are given below as a guide.
