The Junior School and Senior School canteens strive to offer a whole new experience in the way that children, staff, and parents are served and fed, giving them a canteen of the highest standards! This includes an onsite chef, Antonis, who together with his team delivers a healthy and deliciously varied menu daily. 

The Junior School canteen is managed by Evy Petrides and the Senior School Canteen is managed by Theo Balafas. Both Evy and Theo and their team are committed to delivering a top-notch service to the JSS community which extends to the quality of food and liaison with parents, children and staff. 

Beyond our daily lunch menu, we also have available an extensive selection of nutritious and tasty salads, sandwiches, pots with toppings, savoury bakes and bites, soups, smoothies, drinks and more.

As anticipated our greatest challenge faced in the first year was the speed and service times in their precious 20-minute breaks.  We believe after extensive research we have found the solution and have teamed up with KANPLA.  A web and app-based software solution, with a prepaid card system KANPLA CARD. (Kanpla) 

We encourage you all to sign up as pre-ordered food makes for faster service times and use of the pre-paid card during break means less time at the counter, shorter queues and eliminates the risk of kids carrying cash.  Order Up to 7 weeks in advance with live access to view and top up account balances, set personal preferences including allergies, offering full transparency to monitor your children's eating with itemised reports and finally on an environmental level we will have less food wastage. Full sign-up instructions can be found below.

We will still be taking cash and credit cards on site but unfortunately, we will no longer be able to offer credit on account.  This created longer queues, irresponsible spending and large bills.  Please note we will also no longer be sending out weekly menus or reminders. These will be available to view via Kanpla and for you better planning we have attached here below a pdf with full lunch menus for the current term.

Please note order deadline for app orders is 9.30am (8.30 for first break orders at Junior) on the day of order allowing us enough time to process and prep your selected food.

KANPLA CARDS-cashless payment 

All Children Year groups 3-6 and above should have received a KANPLA card that was sent home at the beginning of the academic year(year 2 will receive after Christmas when they are allowed to start visiting the canteen) Please note that if you prefer to opt out, please return the card to the child's form teacher.   Early years to year 1 can still create a Kanpla account and order food they just don’t need the cashless payment card yet as they do not visit the canteen.  Senior school children can request a card from the canteen.  Please note, to encourage the children to be responsible with their cards there will be an E2 charge for replacement cards.
