Accent Catering


From Monday 9th November we will be re-opening our food serveries to provide a break and/or lunch hot food offer to students in all year groups.

Our school catering company (Accent Catering) have worked hard with us to develop a break and lunch offer, which we believe will appeal to students, providing them with hot, home-made, nutritious food whilst minimising mixing between year groups and avoiding any disruption to the school timetable. 

The following will be in place from Monday 9th November:

• Two new additional food service areas (Lower Street & New Servery) in addition to sales from the restaurant
• The Restaurant and Sixth Form Café will be open to Year 12 and Year 13 students respectively throughout the school day, including at break and lunch time
• A two weekly break time menu with a range of hot snacks and drinks
• 3 weekly lunch time menus (published on the website)

main meal £1.80 or meal deal £2.27

Meal deal = Sandwich + piece of Fruit or  Main Meal + a traybake

• A break and lunch offer for students in receipt of free school meals

To provide all students with access to our food servery outlets (within or as part of a year bubble), we will be introducing a new timetable indicating the days on which specific year groups can access our facilities at either break (11.00am) or lunch (1.20pm). Break food sales have always been very popular at Hayes and we have recognised this and extended our food offer at break time in recognition of these necessary changes.

Regrettably, it will not be possible to provide a breakfast service or the facility for students to 'eat in' or dine within the restaurant at this time. 

Accent Catering have introduced a range of protective measures and hygiene measures. All food prepared within the kitchen will be served in sealed and disposable, compostable packaging. For more information, click here.

Parents/carers are asked to add credit to their child’s account via ParentPay since we will not be accepting cash and the revaluation machines will not be in use at this time. 

We hope that students, parents and carers will support our school catering company as they are required to adapt their practices while providing a tasty offer to students throughout the autumn term.
