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.

The Academy restaurant serves breakfast as from 8.00am to 8.30am and provides hot and cold snacks at break time between 11.00am to 11.20am.

Lunchtime is from 13.20pm to 14.00pm in the restaurant, students are all comfortably served within the forty minutes. Vegetarian options are always available and all of our chicken is halal-compliant. When pork is served a halal alternative is always available.

We have a cashless system on the tills and students are logged onto the system via 2 fingerprint-operated machines. 

Sixth Form students are allowed off site at break and lunchtime. They are expected to return in good time for lessons or independent study sessions.

For information on how you can pay for your child's Academy lunches please see our My Child at School page.
