School Life > Food


Breakfast, lunch and dinner is freshly prepared by our experienced in-house catering team and served to pupils daily in the school's magnificent Abbot's Hall.

All produce we use in the preparation of School meals is sourced from suppliers within 30 miles of the School where possible, including our meat which comes from a butcher based in nearby Blandford Forum.

We provide pupils with a good choice of hot and cold options and our chefs are experienced in catering for pupils with specific dietary requirements. Breakfast consists of a selection of cooked and continental items and is served in the Abbot's Hall each morning. The exception is Sundays, when an early light breakfast is taken in Houses, followed by the 'Big Brunch' in the Abbot's Hall after Chapel - a firm favourite with pupils and staff alike!

Lunch and dinner options change weekly and typically include homemade soups with freshly baked bread, a pasta dish, jacket potatoes with various fillings, a main dish with accompaniments and salad bar, followed by a hot and cold dessert and fresh fruit options. At lunch time we also offer a popular deli bar where fresh wraps and baguettes are made to order.

The catering team also prepare and deliver a selection of sweet and savoury snacks which are delivered to each House for pupils to enjoy at break times.

Our menus change each term, based on seasonal ingredients available. This gives students a tasty and varied selection of dishes across the year. An example weekly menu is available in the Downloads box.
