School Lunches

We believe that good health and effective learning go hand in hand. At Ipswich High School we take the wellbeing of our pupils very seriously.

Our food is of the highest quality. Pupils can enjoy a hot lunch every day, cooked on-site from fresh, seasonal and, wherever possible, local ingredients. Each day we have a different menu with a choice of two or three main courses. We also have salad and sandwich options. When pupils eat in our canteen, they are able to eat at least two of their five portions of fruit and vegetables at lunch, oily fish is also provided once a week. Our hot traditional puddings are great favourites with our pupils and are available two or three times a week. Yoghurt and fresh fruit are always available.

We run a nut-free kitchen and offer gluten-free, as well as vegetarian, options each lunch time.
