Dining at 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.

We 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.

Nut Free School

We aim to be a nut free school, so we do request that students do not bring any nut-based products in to any area of the school, as some of our staff and students have severe allergies. Thank you!

COVID-19 Notice

To ensure the safety of all students and staff, we have taken additional measures to make sure the process of buying food on site is as safe as possible. Examples of these measures include:

  • the introduction of screens to our food counters;
  • individually wrapped/bagged food items including main meals;
  • all customer-facing staff will be wearing face shields.

We have also staggered lunch breaks to limit the mixing of year group bubbles.​

The Importance of Breakfast and Lunch

  • 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.


Branded Ingredients

We may be a school canteen, but that doesn’t mean we are just a school canteen! We work hard to ensure that we provide healthy, cost-effective options, that are also really tasty. See below for some of the brands we use in our EBS kitchen:
