Catering at this academy
Our catering company "Innovate" aims along with the school, is to provide all students with an exceptional catering experience. Our very talented Executive Chef and the fantastic catering team will be serving exciting menus packed with healthy ingredients, that are full of variety, and with loads of interesting new things to try. It’s important that the food tastes as good as it looks, and we’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
Our menu has been created after extensive research into student preferences; it is also nutritious and compliant with all government guidelines.
The menu aims to offer more of what students want, including good food that can be eaten on the go as well as themed days to coincide with key dates such as Pancake Day, Burns Night, Diwali, etc.
The catering service includes an offering for breakfast, mid-morning break and lunch.

The academy uses a cashless catering system for the food and drink purchases.

Your child may be entitled to free school meals. Even if your child does not wish to eat free school meals, but is entitled to them, it's worth applying because for each child entitled to free school meals the Academy could receive funding to help with tuition, resources, coaching and extra assistance.

Don't forget, if your child is in the primary then they can get their lunchtime meal free of charge as part of the universal infant free school meal!
