Please contact your school individual menu prices.

What's available?

A mains counter offers the 'traditional' plated meal including the best of British plus different tastes and styles of food from around the world.

Additional service points include:

Hot deli

Hot or cold filled jacket potatoes, Pasta King sauces with pasta or noodles.

Cold deli

This offers a wide selection of sandwiches, baguettes and wraps - something to suit everyone's taste.

Extra service points reduce queuing time helping to make lunch time a more enjoyable experience.

If you would like a hard copy of the menu, please contact your school or e-mail: ChartwellsEnquires@compass-group.co.uk

Middle school healthy eating

Middle schools are a stepping-stone between primary and high schools.

Now more than ever children need to make informed choices about their diet - school, as a place of education, has a crucial part to play in promoting the message about healthy lifestyles.

For young people a healthy diet means:

  • A balanced diet with plenty of variety and enough energy for growth and development.
  • Sufficient fibre-rich starchy foods.
  • Plenty of fruit and vegetables.
  • Not eating too many foods containing a lot of fat, especially saturated fat.
  • Modest amounts of dairy products.
  • Moderate amounts of meat, fish or alternatives.
  • Not having sugary foods and drinks too often.

Starting at a new school?

When starting a new school young people are faced with lots of changes.

To help them find their feet in the dining room all new intake pupils will receive a welcome leaflet introducing the school meals service. It answers some of the questions parents/carers and young people may have.
