School Dinners

How Can I Order School Dinners?

Our school dinners currently cost £2.20 per day for both a main course and a dessert. Payments can be made daily or weekly.

Currently we can only accept cash payments.

The kitchen is open daily from 08:45am for payments or to answer any questions you may have.


What's Provided?

Freshly prepared hot meals are served daily with an alternative vegetarian option. Special dietary needs can be accommodated - let us know in person, by phone or through the contact form to discuss your child's requirements.

All our meals are nutritionally analysed according to government guidelines. We source our ingredients as locally as possible, with many supplies coming straight from our school vegetable garden, grown by the pupils themselves!

What About Breaktimes?

Children may bring in a healthy snack to eat at breaktime.


The Dining Hall

Pupils can sit anywhere in the dining hall so they can remain with their friendship groups. We feel it's very important that each child can sit and relax whilst eating and enjoying the lively atmosphere.


The Kitchen

Our kitchen staff provide a very friendly and professional service. They're hugely proud of the facilities they offer, and have obtained a 5 star award from the Food Standards Agency
