Packed Lunches

Students may bring a packed lunch to school which they will eat in the dining hall. All students are encouraged to drink unflavoured still water to re-hydrate themselves. No energy/fizzy drinks are allowed in school. It is not the school’s policy to dictate to parents what the content of packed lunches should be but the importance of eating sensibly and healthily should not be understated.

Payment

Students pay for their food with cash. Some families will qualify for free school meals. Please see below for more information.
