Important Notice – Please be aware our catering provider, like many other businesses nationally, is experiencing supply chain issues which will affect the menus offered.  We will display a daily menu in school and will ensure there are various options to choose from like jacket potato, pasta, pizza, panini, and main meal, including vegetarian options.  We will also ensure the usual intolerances continue to be met.

Heckmondwike Grammar School catering is provided by Mellors Catering Services Limited.

Meal deals are available with a main meal (hot or cold) and pudding for £2.50. £2.50 is the free school meal allowance.

The school has 3 catering outlets; the main dining room, the SCR facility and the provision in the JCC building. The main dining room provides the widest choice due to the set up with the hot serving area for main meals, the SCR is a grab and go food outlet and the JCC is for sixth form only.

For anyone who things they are entitled to free school meals please contact Kirklees Council, you can apply online at Students living outside Kirklees should contact their own Local Authority.
