Every day we offer a variety of nutritionally balanced, freshly prepared snacks and meals and a range of drinks at both breaks and before school. These include; fresh rolls and sandwiches, salad and pasta pots, yoghurts, fresh fruit and hot meals. There is always a vegetarian option available.
Food is available in both the main restaurant and in the walkway areas. The school operates a cashless system and all new students will receive further information regarding this before they start at William Edwards. Alternatively, students may bring a packed lunch with them and eat this in the main hall, the walkway or the courtyard areas. Eating and drinking in the school, other than in the designated areas, is not allowed.
The menus change weekly with a 3 week rotation. Sample menus can be seen here and a guide to the options available and the prices can be seen below but please note that not all options are available every day.
Please be aware that prices and menus are reviewed regularly and, therefore, they may differ in September each year. Please click the images below to view examples of current menus.
