We usually offer a break-time food service selling a variety of snacks in accordance with nutritional guidance. There is a wide selection of food at lunchtime, also all nutritionally compliant. We have a cashless catering system which enables students to put money into the cash machines around school at any time of the day (but, not during lessons!) and then to pay for meals using an impression of their fingertip. Parents may also pay for meals in advance using the ParentPay facility on the school website. If you encounter a problem with ParentPay, please contact a member of staff in the School Office and they will provide assistance.

Drinking water is usually available from chilled mains water dispensers around the school and students are encouraged to fill their bottles before school, or at break or lunch time. Students are allowed water in class (but not in Science, Computing or other practical lessons) as long as they behave sensibly. We do not allow young people to drink fizzy ‘pop’ or energy drinks in school and will always confiscate such drinks if we see or find them. Please do not buy these drinks for your son or daughter and discourage them from buying them from local shops before school.
