ASK (Amherst School Kitchen)
In recent years we have redeveloped our kitchen facilities and taken over direct control of our own lunchtime catering from the outside contractors. This has resulted in better and more appetising meals, using higher quality ingredients with more fruit and vegetables, greater choice (including a vegetarian option every day) and larger portions.
Two choices are available regarding midday meals:
- A school meal prepared by our own catering team at a daily charge of £2.35
- A packed lunch brought from home
Meal times are considered to be an important part of the school day. They are supervised by the teaching staff with the help of midday supervisors. In addition to the midday meal, fresh fruit is available for all children to buy at morning break for a nominal charge.
