school meals

We are proud to serve a delicious variety of freshly prepared food, snacks, and drinks daily from our canteen. Our dedicated kitchen staff work hard to ensure everybody is catered for.

The school has recently introduced a cashless catering system to help reduce queue times and to remove the need for children to have cash with them in school. Parents can pay online in advance for their child's meals using the school gateway app. Children are given a unique card to use in the canteen.

Please see a selection of our daily food menu below.
