Menu and Price List
Following the recent external review of our academy meal services, we have increased the price of our academy meal deals by 10p, to £2.20; in line with the UK sector average, whilst covering increased supplier costs.
We are also trying to support the use of reusable bottles and, as such, we have installed additional water fountains across the academy.
The Menu and price list can be downloaded below.Ossett Academy Menu 2019-20 (revised September 2019)
- Gluten-free options are available on request in the academy kitchen (e.g. wraps, jacket potatoes, pasta) – students should speak with the kitchen staff at morning break if they have a request for lunch that day.
- Nuts are not used in the academy kitchen as a general rule; however, we cannot guarantee that purchased products have been produced in an environment free from traces of nuts.
