Lunch at Quinton House School is served in the Junior School Courtyard and the Senior School Conservatory.
How does lunch service work at school?
Catering is an integral part of the school’s offering and as such school lunches are compulsory up to and including year 10.
In the Junior School lunch service is staggered. Nursery have lunch at 12:15, followed by the Lower School at 12:50 and then the Middle School at 13:20. Pupils are led into the Courtyard by a designated teacher on duty, in their year groups. Senior School lunch is served 12:50-13:50. The Senior School operates a weekly rota with year groups rotating the order in which they are served.

• A choice of hot meals, with a wide variety of vegetarian options

Throughout the year we vary the menu with the inclusion of specific theme days such as Mexican Day, Chinese New Year and Christmas dinners etc.
We provide assorted refreshments at various school events throughout the school calendar including sporting events, open days and parent engagement activities.
Menu development is ongoing. We actively encourage feedback from the pupil body via a food committee. Menus follow a three week cycle, and are available on the school website and are displayed in school.
