We take great pride in the food we serve in our academy, healthy eating and healthy living are very important to us.

All food is cooked on the premises and many ingredients are sourced from local suppliers. We offer a wide selection of balanced and nutritious, hot and cold foods starting with breakfast through to break time and lunchtime services.

We are also thrilled to offer a FREE healthy school breakfast to all our students from Monday to Friday in JBs Cafe, setting them up for the day of learning ahead. Students are able to choose from a range of  cereals, bagels and porridge. Funding for free breakfasts is provided by the government’s National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is delivered in association with the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast.

*TEMPORARY UPDATE* Unfortunately, we are currently unable to operate our Breakfast Club as we need to keep our Year Group bubbles in separate areas of the building.

Morning Break:  11:10am-11:25am (Monday-Thursday)    10:55am-11:10am (Friday)

Lunch:  1:25pm-2pm (Monday-Friday)      1:10pm-1:45pm (Friday)

Menu: Due to the Covid 19 restrictions we are currently only able to offer a limited menu to students. Free school meals will continue to be made available to eligible students.

Students may also bring their own packed lunch to school and a section of the dining room is set aside for their use.

Cashless Catering

Our academy operates a ‘Cashless Catering System’ where each student is issued with a card which you can credit with money using our online payment system, Scopay.

Each student receives their card in Year 7 and is expected to bring the card to school on a daily basis (food cannot be purchased in the canteen with cash). The card can be used to purchase food at breakfast, break and lunchtimes.

If a student loses their cashless card,  a replacement can be purchased from the canteen for the cost of £2.

Free School Meals

Students who are entitled to ‘free school meals’ are automatically credited with the value of £2.25 to their cashless card at 1pm of each academy day. If you require any assistance in completing the claim form for free school meals, please contact either the Customer Care Centre: 0161 793 2500 or Mrs Sparrow in the School Office: 0161 794 6215
