The Offer

Culinera are really excited to launch the new restaurant service, but whilst we are adhering to social distancing measures the service will be reduced, however still packed with flavour. You will be able to choose from a wide range of hot and cold options which have been freshly cooked in the kitchen by the great team. Options include stretched ‘sourdough’ pizza, hot pots and layered desserts.

Do you have a special diet or allergy?

At Culinera, we use a wide range of ingredients with many of our products containing allergens. As such, there may be traces of various allergens present across our product range.

Our Allergy Champions can help you make a choice. Culinera, Allergy Champions are wearing pink badges.


All chicken, turkey, beef and lamb products are made with halal meat.  The decision was made following a consultation with parents and students and our Student Parliament in 2018.


It is not possible to offer both halal and non halal variations of each dish due to the size of our kitchen.  We display signage within the school restaurant asking customers with special dietary or cultural requirements to speak to the Executive Chef or Allergen Champions before buying produce. 

The school restaurant serves a wide range of food options including a range of vegetarian options and pork options (not halal). 

We are a cashless 


You will need to be registered on SIMS Pay if you or your child wishes to purchase any items from the restaurant.  Your child will not be able to purchase items in the dining halls without sufficient credit on their account and they will not be able to pay for items using cheque at the time of purchase. We do still accept Cash Top ups but will be looking to reduce this over the remaining half term.


Please note, if you have more than one child, you will need to purchase credit for EACH of your children for them to be able to purchase meal items.
