Lunchtime

Healthy SchoolThe Woodlands Centre has an excellent canteen ran by our in house kitchen staff.  Providing quality breakfasts, refreshments at breaktime and lunches at a very reasonable cost, pupils can experience a wide variety of different meals each day.  While we encourage pupils to have a lunch provided by the Woodlands, sandwiches can also be brought into school and eaten in the provided dining area.

Pupils bring in payment of £2.00 in cash for school meals daily and hand into our school office.

[Students] choose a nutritious breakfast to start the day on a positive note.
