At Sanders Draper  we take healthy eating very seriously and are committed to providing nutritionally balanced food for students and staff. This is reflected in the quality of our school canteen and the food provided there. 

We sell food from the servery within the canteen area and also from the kiosk located outside in the playground. Sanders Draper offers a wide selection of fresh foods prepared on site and includes a Breakfast club, snacks at break-time and a full lunch-time service.

A typical meal with dessert and a drink costs approximately £2.55 (price accurate from April 1srt 2021. (Free school meals provide the same menu up to the value of £2.55.)

Packed lunches are also an option to provide your child with a balanced healthy meal. Students are welcome to eat their packed lunch in the canteen or the main school hall or additionally eat them outside.

We do not allow students to go outside the school grounds at break or lunch.
