All pupils are required to eat school lunches. Special exceptions, however, may be made for religious or medical reasons. Any reason for not being able to eat school lunches will require official documentation and permission from the pupil’s head of school.  Snacks are provided in addition to lunch. 


Pupils in years 1 and 2 eat in our second dining hall, with lunch being served to them at the table. Pupils in year 3 and above dine in our main dining hall. Early Years pupils will have lunch in their own dining hall and lunch boxes are provided for pupils in Nursery and Reception. Snacks are provided in addition to lunch. 


Parents are encouraged to provide a healthy and filling mid-morning snack for their child(ren). Please be aware that, for health reasons, Wellington maintains a nut-free environment. Foods containing nuts are not permitted on campus.
