Trinity has its own in-house catering team that provide a varied, healthy and nutritious menu. The catering team are also committed to government guidelines and try to exceed them where possible. The canteen offers a varied menu throughout the day – at break time and lunchtime – providing nutritious home-cooked meals using as many fresh ingredients as possible.
Overall, the school recognises the important connection between a healthy diet and a student’s ability to learn effectively.
The catering team help students make healthier choices by increasing awareness about food nutrition and we achieve this through leaflets, information and posters.

Trinity has a Cashless System which allows students to make payments through the use of cards. It reduces the responsibility of carrying money and allows pupils to keep an account of their balance. Furthermore, parents can request a report of what their child has purchased. We also have the ability to set up a daily spend limit. Most importantly, the system alerts our staff of any allergies. If your child has allergies, please inform the school.
In March 2008, the School Food Trust conducted research into cashless catering systems and identified the following benefits:
Removes stigma for free school meal pupils by protecting their anonymity at the point of sale
Reduces queuing by speeding up delivery at the point of sale
Easy to use
The card can be topped up online which ensures the money is used to purchase a school lunch
Can request a report on the eating habits of their child
Can set a daily spend limit
Alert staff to any allergies
Is your child entitled to free school meals? If they are, please register. At Trinity, the cashless system is highly effective in ensuring that students in receipt of free school meals remain confidential. The entitlement is automatically added to their account and they pay at the till in the same way other students. By removing cash from school canteens, free school meals pupils are immediately given anonymity.
