Catering and Free School Meals

Kelvin Hall has more than 20 dedicated staff who work hard to ensure that all of the school’s students receive a tasty and nutritious meal each day.


Students can choose from four types of lunches that are available on site, including: a sandwich bar, which serves items like sandwiches, salads and yoghurts; fresh Pasta King meals; ‘traditional’ meals, such as lasagne, chilli, curry or fish and chips;  and ‘grab and go’ lunches, which include items like jacket potatoes, wraps, or pizza slices.


Meal deals, which offer a main course, pudding and drink, are available each day and have an increased cost to £2.10 each.


A fresh salad bar is also available each day: small salad £1.50 and large salad as meal deal for £2.10.


As well as lunch, the school has a selection of snacks and drinks for sale at breakfast and during the morning break. Students can even order a 'grab bag' lunch, made up of a sandwich, tray bake, a piece of fruit and a drink, between 8am and 8.40am to save them queing at lunchtime. Grab bags cost £2.10 each.


The lunch menus change every term and students are given different choices every day of the week. All food sold on site is freshly made by the school’s catering team and every one of the meals and drinks available at the school meet the government’s requirements regarding the provision of healthy and nutritious meals in schools.


On occasion, the school will provide fun themed menus such as ‘around the world’, Christmas, Bonfire Night or Valentine’s Day. These menus run for one week and will be publicised in school and on the website.


It is asked that all students pay for their meals using a wisepay card, which is topped up with money in advance. The card then allows them to buy food and drink without having to bring cash to school with them. Find out more about how to use Wisepay  here.


Parents and carers who think they may be eligible to receive free schools meals for their children can find out about the scheme and apply via the school website. Please click here  for further details.

Meal choices set out in black text on the menu are available daily, whereas choices in red indicate that meals are specific to individual days.
