It is often quoted that our school has a family-like atmosphere, and undoubtedly, the freshly cooked and nutritious meals that are served twice a day in our homely dining hall, help to contribute to this atmosphere.

Fyling Hall’s cooks, led by Karen Morley, are passionate about the food that they produce.

Fyling Hall’s meals are freshly produced every day in our school kitchen. A healthy, balanced and nutritious diet was an important part of school life, long before it became fashionable. We source fresh meat and poultry from the region and wherever possible, fruit and vegetables that are sourced locally. The school’s meat comes from the local Radford’s butchers who supply high-quality, locally sourced produce.

At lunch time there is a hot meal every day with a vegetarian option and a salad bar is also available every day. Our menus are set each half-term and then rotated every two weeks. Through the food council, pupils are encouraged to play an active role in the choice of menus. Boarders enjoy a hot evening meal and breakfast in the dining room. We can cater for a wide range of dietary needs including food allergies, halal and vegan. Please contact us to discuss any specific dietary needs. 

We aim to mirror traditional family values at meal times: although the atmosphere is relaxed, there are high expectations regarding table manners, and all pupils are encouraged to help in some way during the dining experience and to remain at the table until their peers have also finished eating.
