Meals and Travel

Meals and Travel


We believe in offering a broad range of healthy meals in our re-designed dining area. Hot and cold food and drinks are available before school, during morning break and at lunchtimes. The Dining Room operates a cashless system and works on a biometric fingerprint reader. This avoids the need for pupils to have amounts of money each day. The price of a standard two-course meal deal is £2.30.

Water Bottles – We encourage all pupils to have water bottles in school. We provide filtered water to keep them hydrated throughout the school day.

Free school meals will save families well over £350 a year per child. If you think you might qualify please apply on-line via the link below. If you are unsure whether or not you are eligible it is our strong advice that you apply. Click for Free School Meals (Value – over £350).

Walking and Cycling

Wherever possible pupils and students are advised to walk or cycle into school. There is plenty of secure, covered space for bikes to be securely stored during the school day. When cycling to school boys should ensure that their bike is in good working order and that they wear a cycling helmet.

Public Transport

St Cuthbert’s is easily accessible by public transport with Stagecoach in Newcastle services 10, 11, 39 and 40 providing a frequent service from the City Centre and the West End of the City. You should alight at the stop for the West Road Crematorium, walk up the West Road and then take the first right along Gretna Road, keep walking and we are on the left hand side further up the road.
