A healthy outside, starts from the inside - Robert Urich
Our first step to ensure this is by ensuring that our lunches are nutritious and wholesome, which are provided by Total Catering Solutions. Find out more about our school lunches here
Furthermore we ask that children are sent with healthy packed lunches and break time snacks. Fruit and other healthy snacks are encouraged and we request that children do not bring sweets or chocolate bars to school as these are not allowed during the school day. children may bring in a small carton of drink but this should not be fizzy.

The Upper School took part in Curriculum Cooking Challenge which started with an introduction and questions/answer session on health, well-being and nutrition, mainly focusing on the Eat Well Guide.
Different cooking techniques were looked at, and the importance of breakfast, and a healthy school meal discussed. Ingredients were split into their food groups and a dish chosen for each team to produce a healthy balanced meal focusing on flavours, textures, techniques, colour and presentation.
