Free School Meals
The canteen is open daily before school for a breakfast service, at break and lunchtime. We operate an electronic cashless catering system which means that cash is no longer used at the till points. Students credit their accounts in advance through revaluation units or by cheque. This speeds up the food purchasing process and contributes to a high level of service.
Every day the menu offers a variety of main courses, desserts and snacks including vegetarian items. Fresh fruit, fruit juice and chilled drinks are always available. Traditional meals are served as well as food from around the world. A wide variety of sandwiches, baguettes, salads and other snacks are also offered.
The Academy and caterer join together in encouraging healthy eating and ensuring that the food available fully meets the nutritional standards A main meal including dessert currently costs between £2.20 and £3.00 depending on the food chosen. Snacks are individually priced and free drinking water is always available. Shire Services were chosen after a thorough selection process involving students, staff and governors, and are responsive to our aim of providing tasty food in a friendly environment.
