Fullhurst Community College

Catering services 

Fullhurst Community College operates a cashless catering system.  Students can add money to their student cards at any of the three machines around college.

If your child is eligible for free school meals, £2.05 is added to their account daily.  This will not show as a balance on the account at the machines but will show up when students go to pay for their meal.  Free school meals provision is completely discrete and there is no visible way for students to identify who has or has not received a free school meal.

Caterlink  are specialist caterers within schools, colleges and universities and are passionate about fresh, healthy food that tastes great. They know that the right nutrients can affect everyone’s mood, behaviour, health, growth and even their ability to concentrate and by encouraging students to eat a well-balanced diet establishes healthy eating now and for the future.

Available daily in the dining room is a core menu with meat and vegetarian choices; pasta, jackets, salads and home made soup. Once a week there will also be a 'concept day' featuring 'Mexican Kitchen',  "Quirky Bird" chicken and 'Pizza Market' .  We are sure these will become firm favourites with the students!
