Academy Lunches

At lunchtime we encourage students to have an Academy meal. These are cooked on site and are nutritionally balanced. We always offer a choice including vegetarian and Halal.

We offer students breakfast, a mid-morning breaktime snack, and a lunch.  

  • We Provide breakfast before morning registration.
  • Snacks are available at break, and all students will be charged.  Note, however, that break time snacks are entirely optional and can be stopped if a written request is made by parent or carer.
  • A set lunch costs £2.40 per day.  We provide your child with a nutritious hot meal and dessert.  Students entitled to free school meals do not pay for lunch.

For information on how you can pay for your child's Academy lunches please see our Parent Pay page.
