All boys at Thorpe House have school lunch provided for them at no extra charge. At the main school there is a cafeteria system which provides on a daily basis a choice of:
- the main meal,
- the vegetarian main meal
- Pasta & Sauce, Baked potato & filling or baguettes
There is also fresh fruit and yogurt on a daily basis and a hot pudding at least twice a week.
The catering is an 'in-house' operation and so we have complete control over what is offered. Our head chef, John Hill, is first class and ensures that the choices are not only popular, but also healthy and nutritious.
The Pre-Prep school have their own catering staff who cook separately for the younger boys. The menus for the two schools are coordinated so that similar courses are on offer at both schools, but the menu at the Pre-Prep is simpler, as is appropriate for younger children.
The Pre-Prep boys eat their lunch at 12.00. The Juniors eat their lunch between 12.15 pm and 12.40 pm and then the Senior school come for their sitting at 12.55 pm. During the sittings in the main school the year groups are on a rota system so that they do not always come in first or last to their respective sitting.
Should parents find it helpful to know the availabe choices on offer so that their child does not get the same meal when he gets home at night, the menus can be accessed via the link below.
