School Meals

School Meals

The catering department at St Thomas More Catholic School is a department that takes huge pride in providing quality food to staff, students and visitors. We have a large dedicated catering team that go out of their way to ensure all children are catered for. Our Chef Manager and two of our current team are former St Thomas More pupils, and several of the team have siblings who currently attend our School.

All menus have been designed with your child in mind; we receive feedback from the school council, staff and parents. Menus change every term and we are always looking for new, exciting and current ideas for the pupils. We offer gluten free options (upon request) and we are more than happy to assist in any other special dietary requirements.


We always have 3 individual menus running each term cycling weekly, meaning your child is offered a wide variety of food! The new interactive menu will help your child be able to pick their food inline with any allergens they may have. To view our Interactive current menu please use the tab below:
