School meals

Our award winning school meals have never tasted better and we are proud to offer pupils across Solihull a great range of delicious, healthy meals, using locally sourced and high quality ingredients.

Spring menu

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new spring menu from Monday 7 March 2022. As we move into 2022 the majority of our schools have resumed normal dining room services with salad bars reintroduced and with the new menu, freshly baked breads are available daily.

Should you have any specific needs please speak directly to the catering manager at your school.
