There is a Breakfast Club between 8.30 – 9.00am to enable students to have breakfast when they arrive, as many have an early start.
Lunch is an important meal for our students though what we provide is so much more than just food. As well as healthy, nutritious and delicious meals our students are given an opportunity to develop independent life skills and reap the benefits of eating with others in a social setting.
Our in- house catering facility is equipped with modern kitchen equipment and our own qualified chefs who have undergone intensive training in food safety and allergen control enabling us to make daily fresh meals for our students.
We constantly review our menus and the ingredients used in our freshly prepared meals at our very own Kitchen. Students are encouraged to choose their meals daily from a variety of daily choices.
Menu for the Autumn Term 2023 can be found here.
Arrangements can be made for students requiring a special diet for health or religious reasons. If your child has any special dietary requirements please indicate this on their ‘Application for Admission’ Form.
Please find some useful links below for helpful suggestions on how to maintain a balanced diet:
