Food allergies and intolerances: whilst children in Secondary School are deemed able to self- manage their dietary requirements, should you have any concerns please contact the medical diet nutrition team directly via this email address.

We run a three week menu. Please click below to view the current menu.





As we use shared equipment in a busy environment, some products mights not be suitable for those with severe allergies, and we can't guarantee that any of our dishes are totally allergen free.

Fusion Online Pre-Order App

All your child needs to do is download the fusion mobile app to their phone, register for an account and pop in their onboarding code. Their Parentpay account just needs to be credited and they are ready to place an order.

For any pupils who don't have the code,  have lost it or are having other problems, please contact the school and we will be happy to resend the code or reset their account.

If you do not have a smart phone, you can access the service online- 

Note that when you pay money into your lunch account on ParentPay it can take ten minutes or longer for it to appear in the Fusion app. Please do not expect money that is transferred at lunchtime to be available within Fusion that lunchtime.
