Food at Ballard

Ballard is a healthy eating school - its official!  The school recently won the Independent Schools Association Heathy Eating Award for introducing some innovative changes to its main menu and also match teas.  Ballard is an energetic place and this means lots of energy is required to get through the school day. Our aim is to provide a wide range of nutritious, healthy but also appealing food  to our growing children. Our head chef, Richard Whiting and his staff take great pride in their food and we also take care to serve the right amounts of food to each child. The school currently holds a 5-star hygiene rating.

Our menus rotate on a four weekly basis to ensure a good variety of dishes.
There is a special menu for our younger children where the food is served to them on their table.

A typical day’s menu

  • Chinese chicken, special fried rice or herb crusted salmon, new or saute potatoes peas & diced carrots
  • Vegetarian: Mushroom stroganoff
  • Dessert: homemade carrot cake or fruit salad
