Everest Catering

The canteen at Everest Community Academy is committed to providing nutritious school meals. We take a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, making lunch time tasty, enjoyable and great value for money.

School meals are provided from the cafeteria and students are encouraged to sit in the dining hall during lunchtime and especially during inclement weather.  There are a number of picnic benches for students to use if the weather is fine and we encourage students to go outside for some fresh air before returning to the classroom.

The menu is on a three-week cycle. You can find a sample menu below:
