Students have access to a range of healthy freshly cooked foods, which meet the new food-based standards.
Meals are competitively priced, with some items priced individually and 'meal deals' which offer best value. A wide range is available, with freshly made sandwiches, baguettes, hot filled rolls, jacket potatoes with a variety of fillings, as well as traditional dishes and international flavours.
School's Catering produces its meals from traditional kitchens without the use of mass production or re-heating processes, and sources as many of its ingredients as locally as possible.

At Sir John Nelthorpe School, we recognise the importance of meeting the health and wellbeing, as well as the academic needs of its students.
There is a well-established correlation between health and educational achievement, as well as pupil behaviour. Schools play an important role in supporting the health and wellbeing of children and young people. As a community we can work together to raise children's awareness of the importance of good health and wellbeing and how they can achieve this by making healthier choices, ensuring they get the best start in life.
