As a college that has been awarded the Food for Life Silver Award, we offer a wide range of freshly prepared food every day, using only fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Our current suppliers include Langridges Organic of Covent Garden, who supply our fruit and vegetables, and Daniel Parkers Family Butchers, who are a local business and have been operating for 75 years.
We also grow our own produce, which is used to create dishes served during the lunch service.
The school café is open between the following times:
|07:30 – 08:25||Breakfast: serving cooked breakfast, cereals and fresh fruit|
|10:45 – 11:00||Morning break: serving a wide range of snacks|
|13:00 – 13:45||Lunch: serving a range of hot meals, salads, pastas and desserts|
|14.45 – 15.45||Post school: serving a selection of hot and cold food, along with a section of drinks|
We also have our Refuel Hut, where students can make speedy purchases of sandwiches, cold pasta dishes, yogurts, and hot ‘pots’ - ranging from macaroni cheese to beef tacos.
Purchases at the café and refuel hut are made in one of two ways:
- Using a biometric system; students and staff scan their finger
- Using a swipe card
The vast majority of students and staff use the biometric system.
Each member of Carshalton Boys has a food account (on Wisepay). Money can be credited to the account by:
- Logging into WisePay and making an online payment
- Using the cash loader located in the café
The accounts of students who are entitled to Free School Meals, automatically have £2.10 credited to their accounts before lunchtime each day, to enable them to purchase a hot meal and dessert.
