MEALS & CATERING – RESIDENTIAL Accommodation
Meals for residential students are taken in the purpose-built catering hall, Kingsland Hall (‘KH’), where pupils choose from a wide variety of foods from self-service counters. All of our food is cooked from scratch, using fresh ingredients and local suppliers wherever possible.
We happily cater for guests with special dietary needs such as dairy/lactose intolerance, gluten-free diets and halal food. There are also BBQ evenings at various points during the course and packed lunches are supplied Monday-Saturday.
