Here at George Salter Academy, our highly trained and experienced Head Chef and his team offer high quality school meals at an affordable price. Our friendly staff are multiskilled and motivated in providing the highest quality food and standards for the students to be able to enjoy their school meals.
We offer a large variety of meals for all students and staff, ranging from meat dishes to vegetarian meals:
- We have a sandwich bar which offers a great range of sandwiches, baguettes and wraps, and also pizza’s, pies and pasties.
- Our very own "Pasta King" counter has a variety of meat and vegetarian based sauces, served with pasta, and topped with cheese for a quick and easy snack.
- Breakfast is served during morning break where we offer a large choice of items such as toast, bacon/sausage sandwiches and croissants.
We try to ensure that we use the freshest ingredients from our suppliers, as this is an important element to providing the highest quality meals. Therefore, we do not plan more than a few days in advance, but our sample menu can be used as a guide to the meals that we serve: Sample Menu [pdf, 86 KB]
You will find our prices very competitive:
Lunchtime Queue Schedule
From September 2015, we will be trialling a new lunchtime queue schedule in order to reduce waiting times for all students - this will be reviewed at October half-term.
Students should arrive at the West Hall for lunch at the following times:
|Years||Mondays||Tuesday - Friday|
|Post 16/Yr 11||12.45||12.35|
Students in ANY year group who bring their own packed lunches may eat in the West/Dining Hall from the beginning of lunchtime.
Reminder - sandwiches are now available to purchase at break time.
As a catering team, we run "theme days" where we cook various dishes from around the world to encourage the students to try something new. We also try to incorporate memorable dates throughout the year to use these for inspiration for different themes.
Cashless Catering System
The Cashless Catering Systems allows quick and easy payment for all school meals and reduces long queues at the tills. Money is loaded onto students' accounts using their fingerprints at the machines located around the Academy. Once students have selected their meal or snack from the dining rooms, their fingerprint is scanned and the cost of the items is deducted from their account.
