The Priory Cafe


The café will be open for both break service and lunch service, but unfortunately due to the requirements of social segregation during this period of COVID-19 we will not be able to provide the free breakfast. This will be reviewed at the end of September.***


The Priory School café is open from 7am to 1.15pm Monday to Friday and provides a selection of hot and cold food for breakfast, break time and lunch.

Breakfast is free to all Priory School students from 7.15am and we provide a variety of cereals, toast and milk. The café provides a warm and safe environment for the children to wait in before school if they arrive early. We encourage all students to eat a nutritious breakfast before school so please let your child know this is available.

Break is between 11.10am and 11.30am where we provide a range of snack foods.

Lunch is served between 12.30pm and 1.15pm. Students can choose from a hot meal of meat, potato and a choice of vegetables and a vegetarian option, and a hot pudding. This falls under the ‘meal deal’ where:

  • Just the protein (meat/vegetarian dish) and potato costs £1.65
  • As above, but with the vegetables £1.95
  • As above, but including the pudding £2.30

There is also an ‘eat as much as you like’ salad bar. A regular salad costs £1.65 and a side salad added to a meal deal above costs £1. Pasta with sauce costs £1.65 and filled jacket potatoes.

We also provide a range of filled sandwiches and wraps priced at £1.60 and baguettes and paninis at £1.80. These can be pre-ordered until 8.30am from the café. Fruit ‘bags’, yoghurts, cakes and other snack items can be purchased individually. Water is provided all day and milk and juice cartons for £0.65.

The staff are all fully trained and have Level 2 NVQ in food processing and cooking, or the equivalent.
