Lunch and Break Time Catering
BRAUNTON ACADEMY – STUDENT CATERING
Braunton Academy Catering Department in Isaac Hall, prides itself on the range of food options (over 800 items in total) that we offer to our students. We hold a 5-star Food Hygiene Rating (awarded again on 5th October by Environmental Health), and all members of our Catering Team uphold this standard.
We are committed to using local suppliers, where possible: Our beef is sourced from Waytown Farm in Combe Martin, our eggs are from Freebird in Croyde and our bread is from the Country Cottage Bakery in Bideford. Phillip Dennis Foods and Ilfracombe Food Service are local suppliers who provide additional food items.
Below is a sample of the type of food that we offer, subject to availability, demand and seasonality.

Most requests can be catered for. Gluten-free (for those who are wheat intolerant or Coeliac), low fat and low sugar options can be requested. We aim to give students choice and good value. We follow the Food Trust guidance on nutritional standards in schools.
The Academy’s Food User Group meets each term, with representatives from the Governors, Staff and Student body. This group discusses food popularity, healthy options, pricing and the ever-popular Theme Days, i.e. Chinese, Mexican, American, Italian, which take place throughout the year.
The new Cashless Catering system has been introduced to all students and is, on the whole, working well. However, occasional student or computer glitch is inevitable as both human and mechanical routines are established. If you have any queries, please contact the Academy.
