Free School Lunches

We urge parents/carers to check if your child is eligible for free school meals as the benefits of this entitlement for your child’s education are immense.  Students receive:

  • Reductions on the cost of school trips and visits
  • Items like revision guides (given free or at a reduced price)
  • Eligibility for a bursary in the Sixth Form
  • Likely reduction in Tuition Fees at University

The school is able to fund some of the above because we receive a Pupil Premium Grant in respect of every child who is eligible for free school meals. Applying for free school meals benefits your child personally and the school as a whole in terms of increased funding.

To qualify you must receive one of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income–related Employment & Support Allowance
  • NASS Support
  • Guarantee element of State Pension
  • Child Tax Credit & your gross income is £16,190 or less & you are NOT entitled to Working Tax Credit
