We aim to provide pupils with a wide range of tasty, nutritious meals. We know that a balanced and healthy diet is key to sustaining children with a busy academic and sporting timetable and believe school plays an important role in encouraging life-long healthy eating habits.
Meals are prepared by our experienced and passionate in-house Catering Team, which is committed to providing healthy, ethical meals for all, sourced from responsible local suppliers.
Our meals are nutritionally balanced and conform to the standards set by The Independent School Food Plan, published by the Department of Education – see http://www.schoolfoodplan.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/School-Food-Standards-Guidance-FINAL-V1a-140616.pdf.
Should your child have any specific allergies, food intolerances or dietary needs for religious purposes we are always very happy to meet to discuss these special dietary requirements and to provide suitable nutritional alternatives.
The cost of all meals and snacks is included within the termly fees.
Day boys are welcome to join boarders for breakfast from 7.30am. There is no need to pre-book. As well as toast and cereal, there are hot options every day from porridge, scrambled eggs and bacon, through to waffles with berry sauce. On Sundays, boarders can enjoy a full English breakfast.
We operate a rotational snack menu including sandwiches, pitta bread with hummus or a piece of fruit.
Lunch is held over three sittings with staff eating alongside the children. There is always a choice of hot meat and vegetarian dishes, plus a salad bar, freshly-made soup and jacket potatoes. A different dessert along with fresh fruit is provided each. Boys are treated to a cake on their birthday and the whole School joins in with an enthusiastic rendition of Happy Birthday.
We often host themed meals to celebrate events including the Chinese New Year, Halloween or Roald Dahl Day as well as our ever-popular Super Subway Nights and Film Nights. All the stops are pulled out for Christmas Lunch, which is always a very special occasion.
Children tuck into a healthy, low GI afternoon snack, featuring the likes of homemade vegetable soup, wholemeal tea cakes or fruit scones.
Many of our day children choose to stay for supper. As with lunch there are hot meat and vegetarian options available, plus the salad bar along with dessert or fruit to finish.
