We are pleased to announce an exciting new catering partnership with Alliance in Partnership (AiP) from September 2019. Throughout the summer holidays the canteen and panini bars will be rebranded with their signature style and will become a much brighter and exciting area. Your children will not only notice a visual difference when they come back in September, but also a revised food offer with a new range of food and drinks at breakfast, break, lunch and after school.
Every morning from 8am to 8.30am
Free school meals students are entitled to a piece of toast for free
Breakfast options available: toast; cereal; bacon roll; sausage roll; waffles; porridge and pancakes.
We are working alongside Radnor Hills to reduce the amount of plastic waste. We have replaced all of our plastic cutlery with recyclable wooden cutlery. We have stopped used cartons with straws and we no longer use cups for tea and coffee, encouraging staff and sixth formers to bring in their own reusable cups. Students are asked to bring in a water holder and we have installed a large number of water fountains across the site for easy refilling.

For those who don’t wish to have a main meal in the school canteen, we operate a smaller station where students can choose from the following foods: jacket potatoes with various fillings, hot dogs, curries and pastas.
After school we serve a range of cakes, cookies and other items, ranging from popcorn chicken, beef burgers, pitta bread pizzas and sandwiches at a reduced price.
Satellite Bar Opening Times
Lunch Break: 1.15pm to 1.50pm
After School: 3.05pm to 3.45pm
Our catering facilities are run in house. We are open for breakfast, break and lunch, offering good choices of competitively priced items.
Sixth formers and staff can also use the Panini Bar located in the Lancaster Building at any time of the day.
Whilst it is, of course, up to each student and parent as to whether to use the facilities, we do encourage parents to support our attempts to encourage healthier eating. It is not good for students to eat crisps, chocolate and fizzy drinks and we do encourage a healthy diet as part of an overall healthy lifestyle.
Free School Meals
As well as having a free hot or cold lunch every day, students who are eligible for Free School Meals receive discounts on trips, visits, music lessons and events.
No-one needs to know if your child is on Free School Meals, as our cashless system means that they cannot be identified.
Free School Meal accounts are topped up automatically each day, but students cannot 'carry forward' their FSM allowance.
