Bournemouth School offers a compelling mixture of high-quality, nutritious food choices, and are committed to providing a freshly-cooked food service in a convenient and fun way. All our meals are cooked on site by our own professional team.

Each month, we offer themed daily dishes, often featuring international cuisine, but always influenced by the students themselves.

In our dining facility, Le Bistro, a two-week menu cycle is used and main meals (with vegetarian and gluten-free alternatives), desserts and drinks are available every day. The kitchens are well run by a fully qualified Catering Manager and the meals are cooked using only fresh ingredients.  Alongside the main lunch counter, a ‘grab and go’ area is available where the students have a choice of items such as sandwiches, hot filled baguettes, wraps and salads.

For students who arrive early, we also provide a breakfast service.  A mid-morning snack service is also available. 

We use a cashless system where parents purchase credit via Wisepay. The credit is attached to the student’s ID card and, when presented to the cashier, the value of the meal is deducted from the account.  There is a minimum payment of £10 and we regularly email parents when students’ accounts are running low.

We ask parents to ensure that students have a sufficient balance on their cards to enable them to make their intended purchases as we do not offer credit. Parents are able to view purchases on Wisepay, and request that their child is prevented from making specific purchases (e.g. from the vending machine). Lost cards should be reported promptly so that a stop can be placed on an account; cards will be replaced at a charge.
