About us:

We provide in house catering for our pupils and students across all of our school settings. We use locally sourced products to deliver quality dishes that are seasonal and healthy in order to leave our students full and energised for their day.

We value our relationships with our local suppliers, who operate in the South West with a network of local growers, producers and specialists. As a Trust, we made an important and significant investment to support these high-quality local supply chains. These relationships ensure that we provide the freshest ingredients to our cooks, who are able to then produce nutritionally balanced meals for the young people in our care. We recognise that good food isn’t just about nutrition and taste; and so, we are proud that our suppliers place an importance on animal welfare, the environment and sustainable food sourcing.

Students and pupils are offered a two-course menu, with a selection of meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan options as well as a pasta selection. After choosing a main there is a choice of different puddings or fruit available for dessert.

To pay for your Child's school meals please go to Parent Pay which can be found here

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Information

Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.” Source – DfE website

Our College is committed to ensuring that every individual student is given the best possible chance of making excellent progress and so achieve their potential. Pupil premium funding is allocated to every school based on numbers of students known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), students who have been registered for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years (Ever 6), students who have been looked after in care (CiC) continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel.
