School Meals

St. Joseph’s provides an opportunity for all pupils to enjoy a hot cooked lunch each day.

School Meals

School meals are freshly prepared and cooked in-house each day, following the Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust Garden Kitchen Menu at a cost of £2.40 per day, £11.00 per week.
