HDHS Catering in the Lighthouse


The HDHS Catering department offer a wide range of food and drinks for our students to enjoy.

We offer ‘meal deals’ on both sit down meals and Grab’n’Go items and we regularly run theme days where students get the chance to try foods from different regions. They may even get to see the catering team in fancy dress!

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day – so every school day we run a breakfast club from 8am until morning registration begins. Serving a selection of hot and cold foods.

We currently hold a 5* hygiene rating from the local council and the food standards agency’s ‘scores on the doors’ scheme.

The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse is a clean, bright and fresh environment for the students to enjoy their lunch times in. We have great facilities on site including a new sound system which plays music through the lighthouse during meal service times.

We do ask that all the students help keep the Lighthouse pleasant for everyone by ensuring they clear their rubbish away into the bins and return plates to the trolleys when they have finished their meals.

Cashless Catering via ParentPay

We run a cashless catering system via ParrentPay so there is no need to bring cash onto the school site. This de-stigmatises and provides anonymity to free school meal students, reduces queueing times and enables us to provide rewards for healthy eating.

Every student is issued with a school ID card which they need every time you want to use the catering services and when it comes to taking your exams. We have set a £5.00 spend limit on every student account (except 6th from), this limit enables the parents to control the student spend. Parents are able to set their own spend limits by putting a request in writing to the school. Replacement cards are available at £1.00 each available via ParentPay, which you can access by the button below.
