The majority of food is homemade and catering staff are always on hand to offer support and guidance with regard to the daily allowance and nutritious eating options. There is a focus on healthy eating and there are regular themed events which add fun and enjoyment to the lunchtime experience. The weekly menus (our Junior and Senior Boys share the same menu and our Junior and Senior Girls share the same menu) are posted below. The cost of school lunches are included in the school fees.
Children in our Nursery enjoy meals and snacks that are prepared on-site, using fresh produce whenever possible. The cook can cater for children with special dietary needs and milk and suitable foods are provided for under twos.
The Catering Department comprises 50 staff, who cover two working kitchens and five dining halls as well as the Riley Café in our Sixth Form Centre. They deliver a warm, friendly and enjoyable eating experience for over 2,500 diners each day.
The department is managed by Mrs Karen Riley, who is supported by Catering Coordinator Mr Andrew Scialpi-Sullivan and Chef Manager Mrs Teresa O’ Leary, along with Mrs Tracy Peacock and Mrs Gaynor Heyes.
