School Meals at Whickham

School Meals at Whickham, provided by our catering partner Chartwells, are changed each term offering a varied choice of healthy homemade dishes using the best ingredients, all of which are allergen tested.

Daily choices include two main dishes, (one of which is a vegetarian option), along with lighter bites such as baked potatoes, sandwiches, pasta, wraps, and paninis.

The full menu is available in our catering facilities, with the option for students to purchase lighter bites from a number of outlets across campus.

Pupils who are entitled to free school meals have a daily allocation put into their account. This will purchase a main course and a dessert or food and drink to the equivalent value.  Click here for more information on free school meals

Parents can pay for school meals using our Parent Pay Service
