Nutrition and School Menus

When children eat better, they do better.

Rochester Grammar School is partnered with Chartwells, one of the leading catering providers in education. We aim to provide healthy eating habits for our students to ensure they are able to develop in the right way and have the energy required to focus on their studies.

"At the heart of our offer is freshly prepared, great-tasting and attractively presented food that’s fully nutritionally analysed by our expert in-house team. We put the highest possible emphasis on healthy, balanced, nutritionally compliant school meals that provide excellent value for money." - Chartwells

Free School Meals

Approximately 20% of parents are eligible for FREE School Meals for their children, but are not registering to take up this opportunity. Make sure you – and your child – are not missing out!

If you are currently paying for your child’s school meals, you could make a saving of around £350 per year (if you are eligible for FREE School Meals for your child).
