Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Central Office















MealsOur menu has been created after extensive research into student preferences, but is also nutritious and compliant with all government guidelines.

The menu aims to offer more of what students want – including good food that can be eaten on the go – and is themed around:

  • Global Adventures – featuring the six most popular global cuisines such as Thai and Carribean
  • Wings and Things – high street-inspired chicken dishes that are fully customisable
  • Deep Southern Diner – for tasty American Tex-Mex dishes
  • Speedy Italian – Italian favourites served fast and on the go

There’s light and simple salad and meal pots too, plus the ever-popular sandwiches, baguettes, wraps, and paninis with a large choice of fillings. 

Special diets

Our caterers, Chartwells, cater for special diets. They have created these helpful documents that answer frequently asked questions and explain the procedure for requesting a special diet. The request form is also below.

Cashless payments

The academy uses the ParentPay cashless system for canteen purchases. Parents can top up a student's lunch card via ParentPay by means of debit card, credit card or PayPoint card, or students can top up their lunch card with cash via a cash loader machine in the academy.

The cash loader machine is instant, whereas topping up via ParentPay takes 1-2 hours for the money to show on the student's lunch account.

Free school meals

Your child may be entitled to free school meals. Even if your child does not wish to eat free school meals, but is entitled to them, it's worth applying because for each child entitled to free school meals the Academy could receive funding of £1,300 per year to help with tuition, resources, coaching and extra assistance. Find out if your child is entitled to free school meals.

Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit
