Academy Meals

School meals are served daily in the main dining hall.

Please be aware that during the coronavirus pandemic, a reduced menu is being offered, and items will be subject to availability.

The healthy, balanced menu offers at least three options (subject to availability) including a street food option with a salad bar, a traditional food option, jacket potatoes, cold food option (paninis, sandwiches, baguettes and wraps) and two vegetarian options. The school dinner consists of a main meal and a school dessert and will cost £2.55 per day. Additional items can be purchased separately. Meals are provided without charge to those in receipt of free school meals.

Students may opt to bring a packed lunch. All students are required to stay on site throughout the Academy day, including during the 30-minute lunch break.

How are school meals paid for?

Cashless catering allows parents to pay for the meals via ParentPay, which can be accessed through the MyEd app. We are looking to introduce +Pay via the My Ed app which will replace ParentPay. More details will be released in due course.

Dietary Requirements

If students have any dietary needs/allergies please contact Mrs Hird in the catering department.
