Millais School

In Pursuit of Excellence

School Catering

Millais has a modern well equipped kitchen designed for the efficient preparation of fresh, healthy and nutritious meals on the school site each day. The school has worked hard to incorporate the Government’s new food standards for schools as part of our way of encouraging all our pupils to lead healthier lifestyles. Parents who send their children to school with ‘dinner money’ can be assured that they will benefit from the wide range of hot and cold meals provided in the Millais School Canteen. Main meals change daily on a three week menu cycle.

At Millais we operate a cashless catering system.

Pupils can purchase a main meal with vegetables with a choice of dessert for £2.50. See Featured Content for full price list.

Early birds can purchase Breakfast Specials from 7.15am – 8.15am each morning including hot bacon rolls and fresh fruit.

A wide variety of snacks can be purchased from the Main School Hall. Have you visited our Corner Cafe - our fast-track lunch stop with a wide selection of home made sandwiches rolls and wraps with prices starting as low as £1.10p.

Salads are freshly boxed main course salads, including Chicken Caesar Salad, Smoked Mackerel, Pasta Salad, and Potato Salad, and boxed side salads, prices range from 85p.


We always provide a vegetarian main meal option with favourites like Pizza, Jacket Potatoes, Stir Fries, Pasta King, Curry, stuffed peppers, lentil loaf, and vegetarian cheeseburgers with Salsa. There is something on offer to suit every taste.

Packed Lunches

For those girls who choose to bring in their own packed lunch, we would like to ask that there are no chocolate bars, crisps, fizzy drinks brought into school to encourage our ‘Healthy Schools’ programme, and our commitment to our students to provide and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

We no longer sell chocolate, crisps, fizzy drinks, or cakes and our vending machines now stock a wide range of healthy drinks including fruit juices and fruit smoothies and bottled water. We continue to be on the lookout for other healthy snacks to add to what is on offer.

Nut Advice

To the best of our knowledge, we do not intentionally use any products that contain nuts or nut by-products in our school menus. Due to current labelling regulations and other food brought into school, we cannot declare that school is nut free.

If you have any comments, questions or ideas that the school would find useful please contact Mr M Leogue (Catering Manager) on 01403 267568.  Together we can make a bright and healthy future for all our students.

Allergen Advice
Some of our menu items contain seeds and other allergens.  There is a small risk that tiny traces of these may be in any other dish or food served here.  We understand the dangers to those with severe allergies. Please ask a member of the Catering Staff for information on the ingredients we serve.
