We were delighted to receive a visit from Nick Gibb (currently MP and Minister of State for School Reform) who officially opened our new Restaurant on 21st September 2010. The achievement of Healthy Schools Status in 2009 helped secure funding for the refurbishment of the Restaurant. The design of the new Restaurant was influenced by the views of students, through the Student Council. In particular, the new ergonomic design has helped to reduce queuing times and these have been further reduced when the cash-less system of payment (see below – Parent Pay) was introduced. Since the refurbishment, the Restaurant Staff are serving an extra sixty main meals per day. In addition, the veranda outside the Restaurant provides much needed cover in inclement weather.
