School Canteen

The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School canteen team produces fresh home-made meals every day. The school canteen is absolutely cashless (payments are made via parent pay) which enables students to top up their accounts online or via machine located in the school.

The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School has an outstanding dining hall providing a variety of hot and cold snacks, meals and breakfast which can be bought from 13:00 until 14:00

A range of both hot and cold food is available. Students can opt for the main meal of the day, a vegetarian substitute or the usual hot snacks and foods such as jacket potatoes which are served at lunchtime along with a dessert.

Wellbeing at the Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School have made some healthy changes, that are tasty too. Before the 2022 school year, pupils would frequently purchase processed foods from the school canteen, however this year, the school has eliminated confectionery foods and replaced it with the Eatwell Guides recommendations by introducing healthier, tastier options such as fruit cups, salad cups, smoothies and so on. In fact 90% of the school menu is now made from local fresh produce. 

Food high in added sugar has been removed from the school canteen this includes fizzy drinks. This also includes sweet jams and biscuits. Due to increased concerns over health and dealing with childhood obesity, sweets and crisps have been replaced with healthy options in the school menu which is based on a 4 weekly rotation.
