We are committed to providing fresh, healthy meals for our students as we believe this has a very positive impact on their wellbeing and their learning. Todmorden High School is a flagship school for the Food for Life Partnership and we have been awarded their silver award for schools.

With a number of brilliant dining facilities and eating areas, our school ensures that your child receives a high quality, affordable, nutritional diet in a friendly and welcoming environment. Our Catering team are more than happy to help with any queries that you or a student may have concerning their catering account, brunch or lunch. Vegetarian options are always provided.

Special Occasions

We try to incorporate as many special and themed menus into the year. This has included, Roast Dinner Day, Chinese New Year, Halloween, Christmas Dinner and many more!

What is available and how to pay

Students use the ‘revaluer’ to put money onto their account. This is situated outside the dining room and it accepts notes and coins. In addition, parents can also send cheques to the finance office and this money will automatically be added to your child’s account. You can put a limit on the amount your child can spend each day, please contact the school to arrange this.

NOTE: The revaluer machines do not accept the new £5 notes or the new £1 coins. Students will need to come to the main office for change if they have either of these types of currency.
