School Meals and Catering

Our catering team works hard to serve nutritious fresh food that is enjoyed by both pupils and staff. Our core lunch menus are on a 3 week rotation and can be viewed below via the links.

We regularly host themed weeks and days such as ‘Food Heroes’ or ‘Destination of the Week’ in which food is showcased from selected regions around the world. These events are promoted within the school.  

We actively encourage pupils to try our meal of the day. This is particularly the case at the start of a new term when new menus are introduced and when new pupils join the Academy. We are proud of our catering provision and many staff regularly eat in the canteen.

Water is available throughout the day from fountains around school and the canteen.

Both Halal and non Halal options are available and clearly signposted.


Breakfast is available in school between 07.30 and 08.30 Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and between 07.30 and 08.00 on Monday and Thursday.

Breakfast is a help yourself style buffet. Students are able to choose from: Toast with butter/jam, porridge and hot chocolate (during winter months), selection of cereals, fruit and juice.

Our Break Time Options

At break time, students are offered a wide variety of snacks which include: Bagels, breakfast rolls, pizza, panini, sandwiches, muffins and fruit.
