The school has an outside caterer, Sodexo. There is an emphasis on Healthy Eating and the menus reflect this. Water fountains are not currently in use but the canteen will provide water. Students can bring bottled water with a sports cap which they can take with them to lessons.

Payment in the canteen
Payment can only be made via Scopay (separate log-in information will be sent to parents and carers) and students need to pre-order their food. Students are encouraged to bring their own packed lunch if possible.

Getting to us

Road Safety
Staff are on duty at the start and end of the day to supervise students entering and leaving the school site. Please note: there is limited parking on the school site, additional parking is available at Tesco, next door to the school.

The 131 bus stops outside the school on West Barnes Lane, the 152 and 265 stop outside the main entrance on Bushey Road. The school is a 15 minute walk from Raynes Park Station.

As we only have one main entrance for vehicles, we ask that parents refrain from driving into the school grounds between 8.15 – 8.40am and 3.00 – 3.30pm unless they are collecting a student who is unwell. The school is situated on a very busy junction so please help us by not creating a hazard to vehicles entering and leaving the school grounds. As it is such a busy intersection, it is essential that students use the underpass when leaving via the main entrance. Students must also use the bridge link when leaving via the DT gates on West Barnes Lane.

Students can choose to cycle to school. Any student who brings a bicycle to school does so entirely at their own risk. All students cycling to school are strongly encouraged to wear a cycle helmet and advised to undertake a cycling proficiency test.
