|Kingsbury High School Catering provides healthy food through the use of fresh, seasonal ingredients, providing students with choice and variety whilst delivering great value for money.
In the Lower School, we have two dining halls where students come together and eat freshly prepared hot and cold meals at breaks and lunchtimes. We follow the government's nutrition guidelines so food and drinks options are healthy and menus are well-balanced. In the upper school, we have a cosy pavilion dining area where students can chose from a range of salads, pastas, stir frys, sandwiches and jacket potatoes. This provides a great socialising space that looks out over Kingsbury's broad green sports fields. The Sixth Form cafe offers freshly made espresso coffee, cappuccinos and hot chocolate, as well as hot and cold bread and cake snacks, and is exclusively available to Sixth Form students. The cafe has vending machines so that Sixth Formers alone can access soft drinks, crisps and chocolate.

We have recently signed up to the Food for Life Partnership. The Food for Life Partnership uses food as a way to improve the whole school experience – making lunchtimes a positive feature of the day and enriching classroom learning with farm visits and practical cooking and growing.
Schools enrolled on the programme are growing their own food; organising trips to farms; sourcing food from local bakers, butchers and farmers; setting up school farmers’ markets; holding community food events; providing cooking and growing clubs for students and their families; and serving freshly prepared, locally sourced meals that follow a rigorous Food for Life Catering Mark.
Food for Life Partnership schools are embedding food education into their curriculum, and a focus on ‘pupil voice’ means students take ownership and decide their own priorities. The Partnership is about bringing people together – teachers, students, families, cooks, caterers, farmers and the wider community – to enjoy good, wholesome food and change food culture in England significantly.
