Meals are cooked on-site by our caterers, Inspire Catering, and served in Blackfriars Dining Hall. A cashless system operates where cards are provided for every pupil and parents/guardians top up accounts and view transaction history via an online portal. Children may bring packed lunches to school and pupils can sit with their friends to eat these in the Dining Hall.
We are proud to cater to our international community and are able to offer vegetarian and Halal options as well as support specific dietary requirements/allergies.
Following the launch of this catering service in August 2015, Inspire Catering has continued to achieve the HealthyLiving Award. The Award follows a rigorous audit process reviewing the menus and food production methods and means that your child will always be able to make healthy food choices at school. Our food offer also meets the Scottish Government’s Better Eating, Better Learning initiative and the School Nutritional Guidelines.
We are fully committed to helping pupils make healthier eating choices by making fruit and vegetables clearly available and keeping the amount of fat, salt and sugar we use to a minimum
The Dining Hall is open for Morning Cafe from 7.50 am - 8.20 am, during Senior School Break, and Nursery, Junior School and Senior School lunches.
