Our school caterers are award-winning
It’s an explosion of exotic ingredients, it’s a veritable feast, yet it’s all about the taste.
Street food is here to stay, especially in secondary schools as it’s easy to hold and perfect for socialising while eating. Of course, they also produce main dishes that you can eat with a knife and fork so there’s plenty of choice, and all of it’s freshly prepared.
From morning break, hot and healthy light bites, to nutritious lunches from the deli range too there’s something to suit everyone’s taste, and that’s without the extra theme days.
Their biometric system means it’s easy to speed through the queues so students don’t need to worry about carrying loose change.

Any special dietary requirements?
Please do let the school office know if your child has any special dietary requirements or food allergies.
Free School Meals
Free School Meals are available for any student whose families meet the Hampshire County Council eligibility criteria. If you would like further information and details on registering for Free School Meals, click here.
Cashless Catering System
Eggar’s operates a cashless catering system, incorporating the latest biometric technology and eliminating the need for students to carry cash throughout the day. The system recognises the thumb of your child at the pay points and tills. We require consent from at least one parent in order for the biometric information of your child to be processed. Any amount of money can be paid into a student’s account, and any money spent on food and drink will be deducted on a daily basis.
