School Meals

Our school meals service is provided by Edwards & Ward, during the school day, food is available for purchase at the following times:

  • Breakfast service - before 8:15am
  • Mid-morning snack - 10:20am to 10:40am
  • Lunch - 12:15pm to 13:00pm -  Please find attached the lunch menu

The cost of a 'meal deal' at lunchtime is £2.35, which entitles pupils to a main course and a dessert.  Students have a spending limit of £5.00 per day.

How to Purchase Meals:

Please note that we use a biometric cashless catering system whereby payments are not made at the till in the Dining Hall, but instead pupils pay through fingerprint recognition or ID Cards.

Please note, the actual fingerprint of a pupil is taken but is stored as a coded string of numbers meaning a fingerprint can never be reproduced.

Parents can pay for their child's meal through one of two options:

  1. by cash using the cash loader machines located in school.
  2. via ParentMail which is a web payment service that lets parents pay online by credit or debit card.  Access to ParentMail can be found at the top of the homepage of this website. All pupils have ParentMail log-on details given to them when they start at the school.

Pupils who are entitled to free school meals will also be issued with a ParentMail account (so that parents can add funds for breakfast or mid-morning snacks which the free school meal entitlement does not cover). At lunchtime, pupils entitled to free school meals obtain all food using the same cashless system so that their meal status remains anonymous to other pupils.
