Lunch Menus

Choosing school meals

All Merit students are offered a choice of hot school meal every day. Alternatively, students can bring a packed lunch from home.


If your child is not entitled to free school meals, the cost from the 1st April 2022 is £3.80 a day or £19 a week. This includes a choice of main meal, dessert and drink.


Our meals are freshly prepared by the City Catering Service who need to have your child's menu choices 2 weeks in advance. For example, hot meals for the week commencing 4th February will need to be ordered by Monday 21st January. 

How to pay for school meals

  • Hot meals
