Our school cafeteria is operated by Independent Catering. They offer varied menus using fresh U.K. meats, fresh salads and fresh vegetables every day from local suppliers. All meals are made on site with fresh ingredients.

The daily menus can be found on The Independent Catering website and students can view this daily on our Firefly VLE. 

A cash-less payment system is operated within the canteen with all students being given a payment toggle when they join the school. Toggles can be loaded with credit via the sQuid website. You will receive a letter containing your registration details which will allow you to add credit on an ad hoc basis or set up regular payments.This credit balance will then be debited each time a pupil purchases food items from the cafeteria at breakfast, mid-morning break and lunch. 

Please see the sQuid website which will guide you through the registration process and to allow you to load credit onto a student account.
