At Sydenham High School we believe that pupils need to be well nourished at lunchtime so that they can learn well in the afternoon.
As such we have partnered with Accent Catering to provide a bespoke catering provision. All the dishes are prepared from scratch using high quality, fresh ingredients from local and regional suppliers.
There is a strict ban on packet mixes or jars of sauces in our menus, allowing us to manage undesirable additives, salt and sugar content. The ingredients used in production are GM-free and we ensure there are no hydrogenated vegetable fats in the core ingredients.
The menus are changed every term to ensure seasonality and include just the right blend of pupils’ favourite meal choices, whilst also introducing new and exciting things to try.
In addition to the three choices of main meals, including a vegetarian choice, there is a plentiful selection of salads from our ever-popular healthy salad bar. The girls can also choose from a selection of cold desserts including diced fruit and home-produced yoghurt pots. Medical and dietary requirements are also catered for.
We are delighted to have been selected as a Finalist for the Independent School of the Year Awards for Healthy Eating 2022 in recognition of our food provision.
