The standard of the dinners at the Junior College is very high. The Junior College has a state of the art modern kitchen and all dinners are cooked in house. Currently, around two thirds of children choose to have a hot dinner. There is always a choice of two hot meal options, a hot or cold desert. The cost of a dinner is currently £2.20 per day. We encourage all families who are eligible for free school meals to take up this entitlement.
