Even if you are unsure as to whether you qualify for Free School Meals please complete the form – it only takes 2 minutes!

All Hundred of Hoo’s Academy meals meet the government’s food standards, which mean they are healthy and nutritious, and additionally are very tasty!  Please ask at the Canteen for a menu if you would like to see what’s on offer, and parents are welcome to come and have a school meal with their child any time.
