Our canteen provides a balanced range of healthy meals to our students, with vegetarian options available. Lunchtimes are staggered to avoid long queues and the younger children eat together. There is also a variety of food available at break times.

Learners have the choice to either bring their own breaktime snack and packed lunches, or to purchase food provided by the Academy. Learners are not expected to stick to one choice or the other and are welcome to change their minds as to which they would prefer to do at any time, even on a day to day basis.

Breakfast Club

St James Academy has secured funding through the Government's National Schools Funding Programme to run a Breakfast Club offering free bagels, toast, porridge, breakfast cereals and drinks every morning, from 8.00 - 8.35 in the Dining Hall.
