Free school meals  

All parents/carers who believe their child is eligible for Free School Meals should apply via the link below to Walsall Borough Council. Applications can be made online or by downloading and printing the application form and returning it to the Free School Meals Department at Walsall Council. 

The link https://go.walsall.gov.uk/free_school_meals takes you to the relevant page on their website. 

It is important that this is done regardless of whether the pupil has been receiving Free School Meals in their Primary School as this information does not transfer automatically to when the pupil joins us. 

The school honors those students who have been eligible for Free School Meals during Year 10 and 11 and will extend this provision throughout Year 12 and 13. Any sixth form student who was eligible for Pupil Premium and/or Free School meals is strongly encouraged to apply for the 16-19 Bursary. Please see the Sixth Form tab for further details.  


Free School Meals – Logistics 

All students who meet the criteria for Free School Meals are entitled to a free school meal up to the value of £2.60 per day. This is added to their account daily. Any unspent funds do not carry forward. 

All parents/carers who believe their child is eligible should apply to Walsall Council via this link: https://go.walsall.gov.uk/free_school_meals
