Secondary School Meals

We currently provide meals at three secondary schools – Manor Academy, St Hild’s and High Tunstall College of Science.  

Our secondary school lunches include a wide variety of tasty options all of them meeting nutritional standards.  Menu options include a daily two-course lunch, pasta, sandwiches, filled jacket potatoes and salads. 

Special dietary requirements such as a food allergy, low fat and dairy intolerance etc can be accommodated and religious preferences can be met.  We will be happy to discuss food choices that best meet your child’s needs. 

To reduce queuing in the dining area, our three secondary schools operate a cashless fingerprint system to pay for meals.  To load cash onto your child's account, payments can either be made at the school using the cash machines or online by visiting the Parentpay website at

A standard secondary school lunch costs £2.25 per day but some items can be purchased individually or with others as part of a ‘meal deal’.

Parents claiming certain benefits can apply for free school meals for any of their children who are registered at a Hartlepool school and who would normally be at school at lunch time. Please telephone 01429 284188 to apply.
