School Lunches

Food is prepared on the School's premises from fresh ingredients. All food is sourced from suppliers within a 25 mile radius and all of our meat comes from a local butcher. 

School lunches are included in the School fees for the Junior Department, and are provided on a pay as you go basis in the Senior School.

For the Junior Department, lunch occurs over two sittings to support social distancing, with a hot sit down meal being provided. 

In the Senior School, we are operating a daily ‘Grab and Go’ service. This allows your daughter to choose between packed lunch and hot options on an ad-hoc basis. 

We have introduced a cashless payment system - the 'sQuid card' which enables parents to top up a payment card for your daughter to use. 

In order to safely manage the dining space, we currently offer a takeaway only service. There is a daily hot option (£2.50), for example pizza, pasta, jacket potato and filling, curry and rice or fish and chips, which can be pre-ordered in morning Form Time on the day.   There will also be ‘Grab and Go’ packed lunch bags available with three items (sandwich/drink/crisps - £2.50) or five items (sandwich/drink/crisps/biscuit/fruit - £3.50), these can also be preordered on the day.  

Girls will go to the dining hall to collect and pay for their food. This will be supervised to encourage hygiene and social distancing. Girls will be encouraged to eat outside where possible, or in their form rooms. 

Your daughter can also, of course, choose to bring in a packed lunch from home. However, please note, there will no longer be microwaves in School available for reheating food and packed lunches brought from home should be in an insulated bag with an ice block.   

Additionally, the School runs a Tuck Shop which sells sandwiches, drinks, snacks and homemade cakes. The Tuck Shop is open at breaktimes, lunchtimes and before and after School. (Please note, in order to maintain social distancing, the Tuck Shop is currently closed).
