Verulam School opened a new main Dining Room and a new Sixth Form Café in September 2019.
Our aim is to serve great fresh food using the very best of seasonal ingredients to create appetising and healthy meals. The meals will continue to be excellent value with a freshly prepared main course and pudding on offer every day for £2.75. As well as main courses such as cottage pie, baby potatoes and seasonal vegetables, there are smaller meals such as chicken wraps with salad and minted yoghurt and vegetarian and vegan options such as sag aloo with rice or macaroni cheese. Desserts are always available whether your child is looking for a simple yoghurt pot or wants the apple crumble and custard.
Week 1 menu – week commencing 4th September, 25th September, 16th October, 20th November, 11th December
Week 2 menu – week commencing 11th September, 2nd October, 6th November, 27th November, 18th December
Week 3 menu – week commencing 18th September, 9th October, 13th November, 4th December
The school actively promotes and encourages healthy eating both in and outside of school.
Groups of students are involved in testing the new healthy meal and snack options before we commit to adding them to the menu so that any new items always have the student seal of approval.
Allergen and dietary information
The school’s catering team has a comprehensive allergen matrix available for students to view on request. There are also signs in the canteen about allergen information. We ask that students speak to the catering manager or a catering team member if they have any questions about the food or if a dietary option has run out.
Food is labelled if it is Halal, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free.
