The vending machines offer a wide selection of bottled drinks. These are located in the Bistro (the Year 10 & 11 dining area) and at the back of the Sports Hall, which crosses the Year 7 & 8 area. Drinks can only be paid for with cash or contactless card payment (there is no ID card scanner).
Exclusively for our Year 10 & 11 pupils and staff, we also have a hot drinks machine in the Bistro. All drinks are 60p each and also, must be paid for with cash or contactless card payment. Pupils must not leave the Bistro with hot drinks.
Lost or Forgotten ID Cards
Lost ID cards can be ordered and paid for via SCOPay for pupils to collect from the school office. Replacements are charged at £1 each which includes the card holder and lanyard.
If a pupil is notifying us that they have lost their card and payment has not been received, then a text will be sent to let parents know.
We aim to replace cards before lunch however where this is not the case, pupils will still be able to purchase from the dining rooms and the catering team will manually process the transaction on the system that day. This is the same for those that forgotten or just misplaced their cards. We cannot issue cards to 'borrow'.
