Our school meals are varied and interesting please see an example menu: sample menu

School meals menu may vary from time to time for example we also have themed menu days recently we had Italian day and American Day which the students particularly enjoyed.

All our meals are nutritionally balanced and meet government guide lines.


St Mary’s have a system that allows parents to buy a lunch card which can only be used to purchase lunch at school. If paying by cheque or cash the card needs to be bought at breakfast only please.

Year 7s are automatically set up on our parentpay to pay for a lunch card which is £10 a week. But any parent can set up on parentpay which incidentally would allow parents to pay securely for a wide range of things such as trips (no more cash or cheques).  Please access via

Alternatively parents can pay by cheque or cash and pupils can take it straight to the canteen where they will be issued with a card.
