Food at Queen’s is superb. No mean feat when you are feeding 750 pupils aged 0-18 for lunch! Home-made in the Queen’s College kitchens and using locally sourced products and sustainable produce wherever possible, menus rotate on a three-weekly cycle. We encourage all the children to eat healthily and as well as hot main courses, vegetarian dishes and puddings we ensure there is a wide variety of fresh vegetables on offer.
We cater for special diets and our catering staff, who know the children so well, are aware if a particular child is allergic or unable to eat a certain food type. We evaluate the popularity of the Nursery and Pre-Prep meals on a daily basis and generally most things are eaten. In fact parents are often surprised that their child, who won’t eat a certain food at home, eats it quite happily at school!
We have our own dining room especially for the younger children and encourage good manners and the art of conversation – making lunch a sociable and happy experience for everyone. We have two lunchtime sittings. Nursery and Reception eat at midday, followed by Year 1 and 2 children at 12.30 pm. The staff always sit and eat with the children.
