School Meals

School Meals

We have a cafeteria that provides snacks at morning break and a varied lunch-time menu. Facilities are available for pupils who prefer a packed lunch. Menus are published on the website here


Working in partnership with our catering contractor, Chartwells, the college operates a cashless catering system. On their first day at the college, pupils will have a scan of their finger taken, which is then converted into a digital signature. By placing their finger on a reader they can access their accounts, which can be “topped up” by sending a cheque payable to ‘Compass Group (UK) Ltd’, or by loading cash on to the revaluers which are situated around the college. There is a daily ‘spend limit’ programmed into the system of £5 which can be increased by making a written request to the kitchen or via e-mail to If problems are encountered with Parentpay, or if you wish your son/daughter to use a card instead of the fingerprint system, please contact the kitchen directly on 01424 224721.
