Why not try the EBS


EBS Kitchen

The EBS Kitchen is unlike any other school canteen; alongside our obligations to provide healthy, nutritious and cost-effective offerings, we provide truly exciting and various menu items that cater to students and staff alike.

different vegware packaging that is biodegradable and is used in the ebs kitchenWe are a conscious kitchen, constantly striving to achieve better standards to reduce our carbon footprint. For us, education doesn’t end in the classroom – throughout the EBS Kitchen we try to impart knoweldge to students in understanding the importance of nutrition and environmental credentials.

We often hold tasting sessions with the EBS Community to ensure our meals are tingling those tastebuds, we have a suggestions box to bring in new ideas, and we speak regularly to the Student Council to look at new ways to improve recycling and packaging.

The packaging we use for all of our products is made from plants by a company called Vegware, and is all commerically compostable.

EBS Kitchen Termly Menus

Our menus are displayed in the EBS Kitchen so students and staff know what is coming up. We have also included them here so you can see the great options we have! We run three week menus, changing each term, so there is plenty of choice. From time to time we can have supply issues, and in these cases, menu items that are not available will be substituted for an equally tasty dish!

As we move from September into the colder months, we provide hearty options to warm our diners up, even on the coldest of days!

Autumn Menus

The first week of the September term will always be week one. If it is week 2 before half term, it will be week 3 when we return. the Autumn Menu runs from September to December.

Important Meals

Breakfast and Lunch are really important meals during the day, and are scientifically proven to help sustain energy and concentration. We provide such amazing food at EBS as we believe in nurturing our students.
  • Breakfast provides the body and brain with fuel after an overnight fast – that’s where its name originates, breaking the fast! Without breakfast you are effectively running on empty, like trying to start the car with no petrol!

  • Eating in the middle of the day, several hours after breakfast, re-energizes your body and can raise blood sugar levels when focus and concentration are flagging. If you’re feeling sluggish, eating even a small lunch can renew your energy and help you feel refreshed and ready to take on the next several hours.
