School meals are prepared by contract caterers in our own kitchens. Special diets can be prepared if required. School meal payments are due for the whole week each Monday, or half-termly by arrangement with the school office.
The cost per meal is currently £2.15. The latest menu may be viewed by clicking here. From September 2018, we expect this cost to be increased to £2.34.
Some families are entitled to receive free school meals for their children. Click here or contact the School Office if you would like further details.
We like to know if a student has any special requirements in relation to food. Sometimes students have very specific likes and dislikes. We are accustomed to helping students extend the range of food they eat and to providing additive free, gluten and dairy free diets.
Students may bring a packed lunch if they prefer. Students in our Post-16 department may eat their packed lunch within the ‘Freshfield’s Café’ area of the department. Students in Middle and Upper School departments who bring packed lunches eat with their class in the school dining room, accompanied by classroom staff, in four sittings:
11:40-12:40; Middle School (2 sittings)
12:40-13:10; Upper School
13:10-13:40; Post-16 Department
