Lunch Menus

School meals are provided by Orian.

Our on-site school kitchen provides hot meals, including a vegetarian option, every day. The menus are on the LunchShop website and meals must be pre-ordered. Alternatives of sandwiches or jacket potatoes with a choice of fillings are usually available every day and fruit or yoghurt are always available. Special meals and diets can be usually be catered for by prior arrangement.

For those children requiring school meals, payment is required in advance and made through LunchShop, our online booking system. The current charge is £2.60 per meal.

We arrange a LunchShop account for all our parents on admission.

Children may bring a packed lunch and should also bring their own water bottle. Other drinks are discouraged.
