Catering & Nutrition
Cucina, Lampton School's catering provider
Our aim is to match our fantastic Dining Hall with a high-quality, healthy and varied catering service that makes students excited about eating at school, whether it be for breakfast, a snack at breaktime or for their main lunch meal. Cucina bring a wealth of knowledge, creativity and experience from their work in school throughout the country.
The new menus are packed with healthy ingredients, full of variety with tasty food that students are familiar with alongside a fresh injection of new flavours and concepts. Ingredients will be fresh, seasonal and responsible sourced, and there is a range of portion sizes to suit every appetite. For hot meals students can choose between several main meals (with halal, non-halal and vegetarian options every day), served on a plate with cutlery, or they can pick a grab-and-go meal from the constantly-changing global Street Vibes menu. Paninis, baguettes, burritos, sandwiches and soup provide even more choice, with a meal deal option to create a great value, nutritionally-balanced meal.
There is a salad bar packed full of fresh vegetables, grains, proteins and dressings for those looking to create their own healthy lunch, plus a range of fruit, fresh cakes and hot puddings for a little treat. Finally there Cucina creates several themed days per term to celebrate cultures around the world and tie in with key events.
In addition to the range of individual items of food, students can choose a variety of meal deals for £2.50 (the school tops up the government's Free School Meals (FSM) allowance to £2.50 so that those eligible for FSM can enjoy these).
- Pick one of: hot main meal; hot/cold half sub roll; filled jacket potato; medium pasta pot; salad bar pot; soup and roll.
- And add one of: chef's pudding; piece of fruit; shortbread; flapjack; bottle of water.
One of the many exciting features of Cucina's catering provision is the breakfast service. Students can come to the Dining Hall before their day begins and buy toast, pastries, cereal or even pancakes! Porridge is provided free of charge to all students to promote a healthy eating routine.
Sixth Form students benefit from an exclusive cafe just for them in the Sixth Form Centre, in addition to being able to buy from the main Dining Hall. The cafe sells deli-style salads, hot savoury snacks, pastries, hot and cold drinks, and even a few treats too. Sixth Form students can use contactless or ParentPay.
