At Mellors

Eat Learn Live SmallWe operate a three-weekly rota during each term, so be sure to check which week we are on in the canteen. Please see our current menu's below.

We have now introduced a "Grab Bag" - where students can place a lunchtime order from 8:10am on the day, and your selected lunch will be waiting for you to pick up in the Hall, enabling you to maximise your lunch time. Please pick up your order form from Student Reception, fill it in then take this to the Dining Room before 8:35am each day you require a Grab Bag for, and your chosen lunch will be waiting for you to eat at the tables at the back of the Hall - please do not take this anywhere else. 

If you pay for your meals, please pay for your Grab Bag at break time using the Grab Bag till.  If you receive free school meals then the total amount will automatically be deducted from your account.
