Lunch Menus

School Lunches

Thank you for visiting our School Lunches information page.  School lunches will look a little different in the Autumn 2021 term! 

Building on the successful temporary relocation of School lunches to the “Dining Marquee” during 2020/21 (due to Covid-19), from September 2021 the School has decided to relocate our  “Ditcham Delicious” Catering Team, who will now be serving school lunches from a new location!  

Over the Summer holiday period, the School has developed a bespoke servery adjacent to the South Downs Hall (SDH), from which pupils will select their lunch options and then move into the SDH itself to eat.   In addition, over the summer period the Catering team has updated and widened further, the menu options for those signing up to pre-paid School provided lunches.  It has been a very busy and exciting time!

Pupils will now be able to choose from a delicious selection of either Hot Lunches, or Cold (packaged Grab & Go) lunches and then move into the spacious SDH* to sit on the recently updated dining tables and chairs, with a wonderful view over the School fields to the Solent.  This location has proven very popular during the past year.

*This additional space will not only provide a more comfortable dining experience for our pupils, it will also enhance our ability to maximise the space between year groups as and when required to in the future, should Government or Public Health Agency advice received in respect of Covid-19 require it.

Our catering team has been truly wonderful over the past year, adapting to their new Marquee home with a smile always on their faces despite the challenges it presented.  We are thrilled to be welcoming them back to school in their new location from September and we look forward to seeing all the big plans they have in mind for the next year coming to fruition – including a number of Theme Days each term which we know are exceptionally popular with our pupils, the formation of the School Pupil’s Food Ambassador Scheme, and the possible re-introduction of the pupil’s Cookery Club!

Details of our Autumn term menus will be available prior to the start of the Autumn term, please do check back prior to 1st September.   Those already signed up to School lunches will be alerted to these updated menus by email prior to the term starting.   For those not already subscribed to termly lunches, it is not too late!  Please contact the Deputy Bursar, Louise Bowen (louise.bowen@ditchampark.com) who will arrange for your child(ren) to be added to the daily lunch list and ensure you are provided with an updated Autumn menu at that time. 

Fees for School lunches can be found here.

Performer. Ditcham has given me the confidence to develop as a performer – singing AC/DC at our Arts Festival was a bit different from what I usually sing in the cathedral choir; I loved it.

I like all the books in Nursery. My favourite book is the one about sharks. When I am big I want to go and see lots of sharks underwater. I also want to be a policeman and drive a police car with a loud siren
