Each day the Courtyard Cafe and the Tuck Inn serves a variety of seasonal foods to students, staff and visitors. The cafes are open for breakfast club, morning breaks and lunch time.
As a school we are committed to providing healthy food choices at breakfast, break and lunchtimes. We recognise our responsibility to work with parents to protect children’s health and we hope to re-balance children’s diets during the school day by providing healthy options. We aim to manage choice so that we can increase the variety of foods our children eat and make it easier for them to choose the healthy option. Please contact the school office if you would like to see our Healthy Food Policy.
Our main meal menus are served in a three week rotation. Click on the links below right to see the options available. To see the Food Standards Agency's guide to allergens please click here. Other items may be purchased at Breakfast club or during breaks. To see a price list please click here.

Pasta King Meal Stamps
Pupils will be able to beat the queues in the canteen by purchasing meal stamps (which are stamped in their planner) for their Pasta King meals and for fish and chips on Fridays. The stamps can be bought from the canteen during Breakfast Club or break. Then, at lunchtime, pupils can go straight to the meal stamp collection point in the Courtyard Café to collect their chosen meal (including meal deals and fish and chips on Fridays).
Pasta King – a delicious pot of pasta with a tasty meat or vegetarian sauce costs £2.15 (£2.45 with extra cheese). Meal deals are available at £2.50 for a Pasta King and a drink or dessert and £3 for a Pasta King, dessert and drink.
Stamps can only be used by the pupil who has purchased them and should be spent on the day of purchase. If they are not used on that day, a refund must be obtained on the same day from the canteen.
Please note that when purchasing a meal deal the drink option is a choice of one option from a bottle of water, a carton of orange juice or a carton of orange juice.
Paying For School Meals
As a cashless school, meals should be ordered and paid for through parents’ WisePay accounts. Students can also top up their account at the machine located outside the finance office.
