St Matthew Academy has achieved Healthy School status and has invested heavily in its own onsite catering to ensure students receive restaurant standard healthy breakfasts, snacks and lunches. We have been shortlisted for a Times Educational Supplement award for healthy eating.
We also have excellent facilities for teaching catering and the principles of healthy eating. This includes fully-staffed food technology facilties in secondary and primary phases, plus a rooftop garden where children grow their own fresh fruit and vegetables. This produce is used in the salads that are available free to students each day.
Parents are fully in control of what their children eat through our cashless catering system, which records what your children eat, sets daily spending limits and allows you to send credit to the school online.
