It is our strong preference that students stay on site during the lunch break. We have a cashless system and a good choice of reasonably-priced food available from the cafeteria.

Students can also take part in clubs or other organised activities, use the Library, ICT rooms, or remain in and around the school buildings.  We provide a relaxed and supervised environment.

A student may only leave the school grounds during the lunch break to return home if a letter from parents, seeking permission, has been given to their respective Progress Leader (Head of Year).  In such cases a lunch pass will be issued.

Students will be the responsibility of parents/carers whilst they are out of school.

We also run a Breakfast Club which serves toast, cereals and breakfast drinks in the Cafeteria between 7.50am-8.20am. 

Our catering service is run by Caterlink.  The Autumn menus and price list can be seen by clicking the PDF attachments at the bottom of this page.

There will be a choice of meal deals available daily. The students will need £1.90 for a main course lunch and £2.45 for a main course, a dessert and a drink.  Extra money will be required for any additional items such as bread, or to purchase food at morning break.
