Café Opening Times
The school café is open from Monday to Friday at:
Breakfast time: 08:00 to 08:20
Break time: 10:40 to 11:00 (or 11.00 to 11.20 on a PSHE day)
Lunchtime: 12:40 to 13:20 (or 12.50 to 13.30 on a PSHE day)
Sixth Form students can access the café and purchase food and hot/cold beverages throughout the day. It is a great opportunity to relax and dine with fellow students between their studies without disturbing their peers in the Sixth Form Centre.
There are a variety of ways that students can pay for items in the café, these include:
Cashless system - we use a system called parent pay that enables families to add credit to student payment accounts. Students can then use their identity cards to purchase items from the café.
Cash - sixth form students can pay with cash at any time during the day. Additionally, students in other year groups can also use cash, but it must be deposited in the revalue machine, which is located outside the main hall.
Visitors are more than welcome to use the café and cash will be accepted.
