Our eat healthy, be healthy ethos is visible during meal times where our food is homemade, plentiful and delicious. The children here at Abberley are on the go, either in class, playing in the grounds or competing on the sports pitches and we ensure that we provide nutritious meals every day to fuel their school life. We provide three hot meals throughout the day, as well as a range of healthy snacks, and we cater for any special dietary requirements.
Meals are taken in two separate rooms to cater for the different year groups and all meals are supervised by members of staff.
Breakfast consists of a choice of cereals followed by a wide range of hot and cold food from bacon and sausages to fish cakes and porridge. There is fruit juice, tea and milk available at all times.
Lunches are served ‘family style’ by a member of staff; there is a choice of a meat dish or non-meat dish and Top years are also offered salad as an optional choice.
Supper is served buffet style at 6pm with a wide variety of food options such as lasagna, beef bourguignon and curry.
Fruit is available in both dining rooms at all times and during the morning the children enjoy a ‘bun break’ and an afternoon tea break. The weekly menus are available below.
Lunch is provided for the Pre-prep children and consists of a hot nutritious main course meal followed by pudding and/or fresh fruit. The children sit in ‘family groups’ at tables in the Main Dining Room of the Prep School. The Pre-Prep and Nursery children have a mid morning and afternoon snack with milk or water, there is always fruit on offer and in the afternoons we provide a homemade snack or biscuit.
