Food for Year 7 through to Year 13

Culinera are really excited to welcome you to our restaurant at CGS, but whilst we are adhering to social distancing measures the service will be reduced, however still packed with flavour. You will be able to choose from a wide range of hot and cold options which have been freshly cooked in the kitchen by the great team. Options include stretched ‘sourdough’ pizza, hot pots and layered desserts.

Secondary students will have access to the restaurant at break and at lunch time and will have the flexibility to purchase a variety of items including hot and cold meal deals as well as snack items and breakfast (at break time). Students who are entitled to Free School Meals can have ANY two items (apart from two cakes).

We are a cashless 


You will need to be registered on ParentPay if you or your child wishes to purchase any items from the restaurant.  Your child will not be able to purchase items in the dining halls without sufficient credit on their account and they will not be able to pay for items using cash or cheque at the time of purchase.


Once you have paid for meal credit, you will see a ‘Dinner money balance’ next to the child’s name.  Please note, if you have more than one child, you will need to purchase credit for EACH of your children for them to be able to purchase meal items.

We accept ApplePay, AndroidPay and card payments in the sixth form.
