Food and Meals

If our pupils are to become the best they can be, it is important they eat well and develop good attitudes towards food.

Meals of all kinds – breakfast, lunch, supper and bedtime snacks – are provided for the school by our caterers and are served by a cheerful, friendly and dedicated staff.  All food is prepared on site, and the company has a policy of providing fresh food that is nutritious, and sustainably and locally sourced.

Boarders enjoy a breakfast of cereals, toast, croissants, yoghurts and fruit as well as a changing hot option such as bacon and eggs or, in winter, porridge. Lunches can be tailored to preference and appetite, and every day a freshly made soup is on offer.  Main courses offer a choice of a meat or meat-free centrepiece, with a fresh vegetable accompaniment.  A further option is the salad bar: a choice of items can be accompanied by any or all of a range of seven or eight salad sides.

Our menus cater for all tastes, and include traditional British favourites as well as dishes from around the world. For boarders, we offer a ‘home from home’ selection that allows them to combine the new with the familiar.

Boarders’ supper is served in the evening and, again, there are hot meat-based and vegetarian dishes with salad as an alternative, and a dessert to choose from. All diets can be catered for, either for cultural, medical or religious reasons, and our Catering Manager is always happy to discuss your child’s particular requirements.
