Rossett School recognises the importance of good quality, nutritious meals to ensure good health and maximum educational achievement for our students. Our catering is provided in-house by a dedicated catering team who are passionate in sourcing local and seasonal produce ensuring exciting dishes are made with the freshest ingredients. We listen carefully to the views of students as we design new menus and exciting dishes from around the world whilst meeting and exceeding the ‘Healthy Eating’ guidelines issued by the DfE.

We have two main dining halls and the Year 7s and Sixth Form have their own dedicated areas.  This allows students to eat with their peers in a pleasant, sociable environment.

A number of vending machines are available for use by the students. These only sell products within DfE guidelines.

We cater for all dietary requirements and parents with any concerns or any questions in regards to our catering services are encouraged to contact our Catering Manager, Steve Ashburn on

This is the most effective method to top up student balances, however we also accept cheques to the Finance Office and cash via a catering machine in school. The students can then access their account at the till point by a biometric recognition system.
