Mrs Hayley Farrelly the Cook in Charge with Mrs Stacey Morgan and Mrs Angela Stanley Assistant Cooks, Mrs Helen Foster and Mrs Meryl Williams make up the rest of this valuable team.
Mrs Farrelly prepares a menu each week and is excellent at ensuring there is always a variety of food and new ideas to try to entice the pupils to try new meals, all kept within the guidelines. Pupils do have an input on meals, each term the pupils who stay on residence are asked for their views.
All the food is prepared from fresh ingredients and following the Healthy Eating regime.
There are two lunch sittings every day with the year groups mixed.
Meryl and Helen cover the cleaning of the house and residence, they work extremely hard to keep the areas fresh and clean, the staff and pupils really appreciate, how clean the areas are when they arrive in work in, which gives a good start to the day.
Meryl is always looking for money saving ideas getting the best value at all times and along with Helen raises funds for the School Charity.
At the present time the School is part of the Magic Breakfast scheme. Unfornately, due to COVID we no longer have the facility to host Breakfast Club in the canteen but we ensure no pupil goes hungry and breakfast packs are provided for each form group. This ensures all pupils start the day by having had a drink and some nourishing food to eat, which gives them the energy to concentrate in the class and do well in lessons.
Magic Breakfast had continued to deliver during the COVID crisis and have been delivering breakfast packs to pupils at home.
Miss Juliet Williams and Mrs Lynette Quirk are the School Cleaners and work very hard to keep the School sparkling.
