Breakfast Club every morning from 10th September

The Chill will be starting a new breakfast club from Monday 10th September. It will be open every morning from 8am until 8.40am.

A variety of food will be on offer including bagels, cereal, yoghurts, toast and hot and cold drinks.

Food Prices for 2017/18

We have undertaken a price review of all food and drink served at break and lunchtime in the Chill. In order to keep up with the increase in prices from our suppliers, we have found it necessary to increase the price of most items. If you wish to see a specific list detailing all items click here.

We are pleased to announce that the price of the £2.40 and £1.75 Meal Deals remain unchanged, which we believe offers excellent value.

We hope the students enjoy the food provided by the Catering Department and welcome any feedback to the Catering Manager.


Welcome to the Chill

The Catering department at Carre`s Grammar School proudly offers students, staff and visitors an excellent choice of food and drinks, all of which are nutritionally balanced and comply with school food standard regulations.

Our recently renamed dining room “The Chill” has a bright modern, bistro style environment offering a welcoming social place for our students to meet and dine.

The emphasis is on providing well balanced, homecooked meals produced by profession qualified Catering staff using local reputable suppliers were possible. We support our students in using ingredients grown by our enthusiastic team of “Allotmenteers” who have worked extremely industriously on a newly acquired allotment to provide seasonal vegetables.

In September 2012 we are delighted to support The William Alvey Church Of England School in producing packed lunches for their free school meals pupils.

We use a Cashless Pay system in The Chill and this is linked to an online Parentpay facility. Cashless Pay provides students with a quick efficient payment service to beat queues and anonymity to those students entitled to free school meals. Additionally for parents they can access information on which purchases their son or daughter has made. Click here to access the Parentpay website.

Daily Meal Deals have proved extremely popular and offer excellent value for money.

Our four week menu cycle provides students and staff with a wide variety including main meal choices, freshly prepared sandwiches, a very popular made- to- order baguette bar, various filled tortilla wraps, fresh fruit, chilled pasta pots and homemade cakes and biscuits.

Our Catering service has been endorsed by the County Council as being both professional and outstanding and along with the highest award from the Environmental Health department we aim to continue working hard to maintain this.

We welcome any comments from both students and parents and these can be addressed to the Catering Manager via Catering@carres.uk.

The Catering team look forward to your support.
