We have established our own in-house catering team. It is very important to the Academy that students receive quality, wholesome and nutritious food.


A free light breakfast consisting of fruit juice, fresh fruit or toast, is served from 8am.

A varied fresh lunch is served between 12:30 and 14:00. We offer a pasta bar, fresh salad bar, hot main meal, vegetarian main meal, fresh sandwiches and baguettes, fresh fruit and home made desserts. For more information, see below menus and pricing.

Restaurant Menus and Pricing


The menus are on a four week rotation, starting at Week 1 at the start of every half term.

On arrival at the Samworth Church Academy students are issued with a lunch card free of charge. Students are strongly encouraged to keep their card safe and with them every day. Lost or damaged cards could result in a charge for replacements. Any student who purposely damages or defaces their card will need to purchase a replacement at a cost of £2.00.  

Students can check the balance of their account throughout the school day and it is the students' responsibility to ensure they have sufficient funds. Students with insufficient funds on their account will need to obtain a loan from the Student Information Desk to be reimbursed when the card is topped up. This does not affect students who are in receipt of free school meals.

The cost of replacement lunch cards is as follows:

1st replacement card - Free of charge

2nd and additional replacement cards -£2.00
