The St Edward’s 1710 Food Hub was designed by students, in all year groups, the brand is aspirational and looks equally at home in the School or our Sixth Form Block. Our new brand concepts have been tried and tested with our students and developed with tighter budgets in mind and offer nine balanced items at 99p. A menu is detailed on this page, with nutrition and allergen information also available to download for parents of children with special diets.
Our new purpose built dining hall caters for up to 280 people in a sitting. A wide variety of hot and cold food is available with vegetarian, vegan and halal options. The food choices change on a weekly basis.
Years 7 – 11 use the food hall
Years 12 & 13 have an eating area in the sixth form block.
