Lunch Menu

The New School Menu


As a school, we have cancelled our contract with our previous catering suppliers. We have done this to improve the quality and variety of hot lunches we provide. Toni, our chef, has extensive experience working in top hotels around Europe, and is highly skilled in catering for large numbers whilst delivering high quality dishes. Where possible dishes are made from scratch and we always look to use the best ingredients we can source.


Our new, two-week menu is designed carefully around what we know the children enjoy. We know how fussy some can be - and that's just the staff! 


Four days a week there is a meat and vegetarian option served with vegetables as well as daily specials which enable us to see what else the pupils like. Thursday is a meat free day - the current advice is to do this for health reasons and also it's positive contribution to climate change. Every other week we have 'Fishy Friday' - always a favourite. The other Friday menu is a traditional beef or blind Scouse; we believe it's important to remember our roots! 


We're sure there is something here for everyone so why not give it a try!

Summer Term 20/21 - Lunch Menu

What do our pupils think?


"Every once in a while, I have hot dinners in school. The new menu is not only healthy, but also offers everyone a lot of choice. I think I'll be choosing hot dinners a lot more often from next week." Lexi S - C13


"This week, I've really enjoyed the hot dinner selection.  It has been nice to have something different each day to choose from, especially on the specials board. I'm looking forward to New York! New York! day" Michael B - C14


"I really liked the hot dog and wedges that we had this week. It was something a little bit different to the usual menu.  I can't wait for the new menu to begin next week!" Niamh C - C15


"This week, I've loved the new meals that feature on the menu because we can try new things that we haven't tasted before. It has been interesting to see the Specials Menu each day as it adds more variety to the things that we choose to eat. This week, I loved the hot dogs!" Nathan S - C16
