Dining Hall

The Dollar Academy Dining Hall caters for pupils from Prep 4 to Form 6, as well as our boarding community. Pupils can bring packed lunches to eat in the Dining Hall, and older pupils from Form IV - VI have the option to buy their lunch from the village.

Dining Hall Information

Our catering is provided by award-winning external partner Thomas Franks, who produce a wide range of healthy, locally-sourced food on site every day. Lunch consists of three courses and costs £4.50. There’s also ‘Castle Hill Deli’ which offers a selection of salads, paninis, subs, wraps and fruit. Pupils are welcome to bring packed lunches to eat in our dining hall. Pupils in Form IV-VI are also allowed to buy lunch in the village.

In 2020, we became the first independent school in the UK to be awarded the Food for Life Green Kitchen Standard Award, in recognition of our extensive sustainability practices. Issued by Food for Life, a Soil Association programme that works to make good food available to all, the Green Kitchen Standard Award recognises organisations that sustainably manage their energy, water and waste.

Our boarders each get breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Dining Hall from Monday – Friday. In addition a snack after school and a light supper around 8pm are provided in each boarding house. On Saturdays and Sundays, breakfast and an evening meal are provided in the houses with brunch served in the dining hall.
