Catering by Eggar's for Eggar's
We are really excited to have brought our catering in house. From November 1 we are providing a catering service that is specific to Eggar’s. We will not only be able to develop our menus to meet the needs of our students and staff, we will also be able to respond immediately to new trends, legislation and food supply issues. Special dietary requirements or food allergies can also be easily catered for.
Led by Head Chef Rosemary Lock, our team will provide a wide variety of freshly prepared meals and light bites, from breakfast first thing through to morning break and lunchtime.
Nutritious lunches can be eaten in our bespoke Refectory where there’s something to suit everyone’s taste. The ever-popular Eggar’s street food will also be available; easy-to-hold, hot and healthy snacks which are perfect for socialising while eating.
Looking ahead, we are planning many new events and activities to encourage our students and staff to try new and different foods. These are exciting times for all who Eat@Eggar’s!
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
We operate a cashless catering system, using the latest biometric technology and eliminating the need for students to carry cash throughout the day. The system simply recognises the biometric reading of your child’s thumb at the tills.
Students will each be given an account and any amount of money can be paid into it. Anything spent on food and drink will be deducted on a daily basis. Accounts are easily topped up online via Scopay.
We require consent from at least one parent for the biometric information of your child to be processed. For frequently asked questions and an opt-in form please click on the attachments at the bottom of the page.

Do the Maths! Year 10 students Libby, Evie, Jess and Cali took up the Alton School Maths Challenge this week. Working with four future Eggar's students from Bentley School, they tackled three rounds of very difficult problem-solving maths. They were fantastic ambassadors https://t.co/onVvrb3qcJ 10:18 PM - 25 Jun 2022
It's Fri-YAY and we're celebrating Matt D and his performance at the National Schools Biathle last weekend. He was placed 2nd in the Year 7 Boys race. (Biathle is an event that can involve a runswimrun course, or simply a swimrun course). #SoundsExhausting #GoMattGo https://t.co/pIe7RXQUpa 6:00 PM - 24 Jun 2022
