At Cockburn School we offer a wide range of freshly cooked, healthy foods. With the wide selection and variety of foods on offer we ensure there is something for everyone – even the fussiest of eaters! We constantly listen to our students to ensure we continue to deliver food that is appetising and in demand. On this page you will learn more about what we have to offer and our ethical sourcing policy.

Our Catering Team feels strongly that the range of food on offer will not only appeal to all students but will be of the highest quality, nutritionally balanced and fresh. In addition, the team seeks to ensure that all dietary requirements are catered for. Allergy sufferers are closely monitored and regularly informed of the right foods for them. We also offer daily halal options.

Passionate about ensuring each student eats a healthy, balanced diet, our biometric tills enable us to monitor a student’s diet by keeping a record of each transaction made. This means we can monitor their purchases and keep you informed.
