The catering at Blenheim High School is very popular with both our students and staff. A wide range of healthy, hot and cold meals are freshly prepared by our caterers in school every day.
Our Caterer is Accent Catering. Examples of menus can be downloaded from the bottom of this page. You can also download further information about Accent.
We offer a vegetarian option on our menu every day. We accommodate specific dietary requirements and would ask parents to inform the catering manager (Mrs. A. Charlwood) about these.
In addition to the canteen, there is a separate café for the Sixth form which offers the full range of hot and cold meals but also includes a Salad Bar and has fresh Coffee available. There is also a 'food pod' in the Technology quad where students are able to purchase snacks.
All students are able to purchase their food through a cashless account which is credited by parents through the ParentPay online system. This system uses a biometric finger recognition which avoids the need to remember a PIN. Students select their food and drink choices and their finger is then scanned at the pay point. Parents can view the food and drink being bought by their child by viewing your ParentPay account. Students can purchase fresh food for Breakfast (08:15 to 08:45 every day) and for Lunch in either Break 1 (11:05-11:30) or Break 2 (13:30-14:55) according to their House. This alternates on a weekly cycle.
Students are welcome to bring a packed lunch. These can be eaten in the Main Hall or on the picnic tables in the Quad and Technology Quad.
The canteen regularly has themed days or weeks with special menus celebrating particular events or themes.
Student Voice is used to further improve our menus, for example the inclusion of a Salad Bar in the Sixth Form Café.
