Free School Meals

Students entitled to free school meals are credited with £2.70 each day that they can spend at morning break or at lunchtime. Students choose their items and then use their thumbprint or PIN at the canteen till.  Free School Meal credit is only recognised by the till system and does not show as available credit on the top-up machines.

How to apply for free school meals

Applications can be made through Torbay Council by following the link below. This page includes a simple way to check if you are eligible for free school meals before you apply.

If your child is joining the College for the start of Year 7 and had free school meals in a Torbay primary school, then you do not normally need to apply, the entitlement will follow your child.  If you are joining the College from a school outside Torbay, then you will need to apply again.
