Welcome to the schools canteen, The Three Crowns. Named by a student poll the cateen is open break time and lunch time for hot and cold food. Using finger-print technology pupils no longer need to scramble in their pockets for change. Instead, they can put money into their account, either through using a cash-box in school or online via Plus Pay. Taking away the worry of carrying cash day-to-day.
There is ample seating for all those who want to use the facility, and the menus change each day. In line with our Healthy Schools status, all menus are based around healthy eating options, and there is a wide range of options from full roast dinners, to the salad bar or the variety of sandwiches and baguettes. Students and staff can relax in a pleasant café-style atmosphere, chat over their lunches and listen to music or watch twenty-four hour news on the plasma screen television. Gone are the days of boys sitting in silence in rows, awaiting the moment when the masters had been served and they could finally eat!
Those bringing packed lunches are welcome to use the canteen facilities too, as the cashless system turn-around times mean that it is never full.
